The Prime Minister in the meeting also outlined his regional policy and said he will pursue as the Chair of the Pacific Islands Forum to restore the solidarity of the Forum family.

Rabuka has reasserted Fiji’s commitment to work closely with all the development partners in the fulfillment of the collective vision of the 2050 Strategy for the Blue Pacific Continent.

He added that Fiji and China have shared friendly relations over the last 48 years, and he reaffirmed the Fiji Government’s support to the “One China Principle”- which is a long-standing international consensus.

In response, Wang said China and Fiji are good friends, partners who always respect each other and pursue common development.

“Our friendship stands strong in good times and also challenging times. China appreciates the Fiji Government for adhering to the One-China Principle.
