CHINA has formalised the assistance of $1million yuan ($286,792) worth of equipment to the Fiji Police Force.

On Tuesday, Police Commissioner Brigadier General Ioane Naivalurua signed a memorandum of agreement in Beijing with Meng Hongwei, the vice minister of China's Ministry of Public Security.

Brig-Gen Naivalurua thanked the Chinese government for its continued support to the force since the formalisation of security co-operation in 2011.

A statement issued by the Fiji Embassy in China said the assistance was anticipated to be part of the many benefits that the force would receive from China.

Other issues discussed at the signing ceremony included the attachment of police officers, joint investigations of transnational crimes, training assistance, community policing and cultural exchange.

Brig-Gen Naivalurua is on a 11-day visit to China with senior police officers.
