The Fiji Government today signed three agreements with the People’s Republic’s of China.

Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama  signed the agreements after welcoming the Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National Peoples Congress of the Peoples Republic of China Wu Bangguo in Nadi.

Bainimarama in his speech after the signing said the first signing provides for important technical cooperation between Fiji and China. This agreement will enable Fiji to gain insights from China’s impressive technological advances and economic gains of the last quarter century.

The second will help Fiji with financing for new public-works projects. And the third will pave the way for the upgrading of Fiji’s roads.

He said Bangguo’s visit mark the next step in the increasingly fruitful relationship between the Republic of Fiji and the People’s Republic of China.

“My government is reaching out, through our “Look North policy,” to build new relationships with the great nations of Asia.”

He said while reaching out to the great nations of Asia, the People’s Republic of China is surely the most prominent among them.

“The People’s Republic of China understands how life in Fiji is improving, and is generously investing in our program to grow the Fijian economy and provide sustained livelihoods for all Fijians.”

By developing cordial and mutually respectful relations with many nations, he said Fiji becomes stronger and Fiji has become less reliant on a handful of partners, and we share in the greater technological and cultural wisdom that exists around the globe.
