THE Commonwealth Secretariat is willing to assist Fiji in providing software for the Ministry of Finance’s debt management system.
It has also been confirmed that the secretariat is also willing to assist in any area of its competency that the government may require in preparation for the 2014 national elections.
A government statement issued yesterday said this was made known to Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation Ratu Inoke Kubuabola at a meeting with the deputy secretary-general of the Commonwealth Secretariat Mmasekgoa Masire-Mwamba in New York yesterday.
“The meeting was held to follow-up on a number of issues that were discussed in Suva during the Commonwealth Secretariat’s visit to Fiji earlier this year and explore ways in which the Commonwealth Secretariat and the Fijian government could co-operate with a view to assisting the implementation of Fiji’s roadmap towards the 2014 elections,” it stated.
At the meeting, Ms Masire-Mwamba also reiterated the Commonwealth Secretariat’s desire to have another visit at the end of the constitution consultation process at the end of this year to ascertain what specific areas they could assist Fiji on.
Ratu Inoke is attending the United Nations General Assembly general debate in New York.
