Fiji’s newest mission in Seoul, South Korea was commissioned today by Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama.

The Mission, located at Tongsan-gu, Seoul, will be headed by Ambassador Filimone Kau and two officers.

Speaking to members of the Korean National Assembly, the Diplomatic Corp and representatives from Korea's private sector at the Westin Chosun Hotel, PM Bainimarama highlighted that the opening of the Fiji Embassy is expected to foster trade and investment opportunities between the two countries.

"In this process we open new markets for our goods and services, invite investment, develop and modernise our economy and improve the lives for all Fijians,” he said in a statement.

"I believe that Fiji has many exciting investment and partnership opportunities for Koreans, we also offer a number of attractive incentives for investment," Bainimarama said.

Fiji’s relationship with the Government of the Republic of Korea goes back more than 4 decades stemming from 1971.
 
Fiji is the 131st mission to open in South Korea.
