The opening of Fiji’s latest embassy in the United Arab Emirates is an opportunity for both countries to strengthen their relations, says Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama.

Bainimarama yesterday opened the new embassy in Abu Dhabi, demonstrating government’s commitment towards enhancing international relations.  

He highlighted that while the embassy will provide consular assistance to Fijians who live and work in the UAE, it will also position Fiji’s interests in the region.

“I am also proud that this embassy will provide consular and citizenship services to the many Fijians who live and work in this part of the world, including the families who live in the U.A.E., many of whom are here today. No government can forget its citizens, no matter where they are”, Prime Minister Bainimarama said in a statement.

“Fiji also has the ability to offer many niche export products that are not available elsewhere in the world. We have been a leader in the Pacific for ensuring that our products comply with international standards. In addition, many of our products take advantage of our pristine environment”.

Bainimarama also paid tribute to the UAE’s growth over the  years adding that the establishment a new Fiji mission will provide the opportunity for Fiji to learn from the UAE’s experience.

“The UAE has shown the world how development and economic growth can take place in a relatively short span of time for the benefit of your citizens through a focused vision and inspirational leadership”, Prime Minister Bainimarama told guests.

“With our formal presence in UAE from today, we look forward to learning from and working together with UAE and her people for the mutual benefit of both our nations”.

Her Excellency the Minister of State of the UAE Ms Reem Al Hashimi delivered her address to guests at the event which included Fiji’s Heads of Diplomatic Missions based from around the region, as well as diplomatic officials from other foreign missions based in the UAE.
