Fiji's Prime Minister, Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama visited India this week to hold further discussions on the sugar technology mission mill upgrading project and new projects on co-generation of electricity, sugar refinery, and production of ethanol.

Bainimarama was accompanied by Fiji’s High Commissioner to India, Yogesh Karan and Executive Chairman of the Fiji Sugar Corporation, Abdul Khan.

The Prime Minister had earlier met the Indian Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh and the former Minister of Finance and current President, Shree Pranab Mukherjee during the 41st International Sugar Organisation meeting in April in New Delhi on similar agendas.

India’s Minister for External Affairs, Shree S M Krishna said that India has expertise in the sugar industry and sugar related sectors where its technology can be useful to Fiji.

He also stated that India would deploy experts to Fiji to review the sugar mill upgrading project to rectify challenges associated with the industry within the next month.

Bainimarama told the Indian Government that one of the reasons why the sugar industry is vital to Fiji is because of the high number of people that depend on the industry for employment.

Meanwhile, Krishna said that India has the necessary expertise to assist Fiji in water resource management as well as Fiji’s coconut industry.

Fijian High Commissioner, Karan said that Fiji will prepare for the Development Corporation and Joint Trade Committee meetings with India.
