“I look forward to working closely with the Government and people of Fiji in addressing priority areas such as climate change, sea level rise, environment, disaster management and contributing meaningfully to the wider sustainable development of Fiji.”

He shared that Fiji, the Pacific Island countries and Japan will strengthen collective efforts in tackling with regional and global challenges in accordance with the 2050 Strategy, including climate change and natural disasters, protection of oceans and cooperation and people-to-people exchanges.

His Excellency, the President Ratu Wiliame Katonivere, Madam First Lady Vilomena Katonivere, Permanent Secretary for Foreign Affairs  Lesikimacuata Korovavala and cabinet ministers and members of the diplomatic corps were in attendance at the function.
