Discussions at the meeting also highlighted prospects for inter-parliament collaboration and exchanges of good practices and experience to strengthen capacity-building for parliamentarians of both countries.

In response,Willis congratulated Prime Minister Rabuka for winning the general election and wished him well on his leadership role.

She also expressed her appreciation to Rabuka for the productive discussions which builds on opportunities for greater development cooperation between the two nations.

Foreign Affairs spokesperson, Gerry Brownlee was also part of the meeting.
