MOU to help exports

A MEMORANDUM of Understanding (MOU) signed between the Shaoxing municipality in China and the Suva City Council will help increase exports in Fiji.

Speaking at the council chambers on Tuesday, Suva's special administrator Chandu Umaria said the MOU signing would create the exchange of culture and create more investment in Fiji.

Mr Umaria said the Shaoxing municipality had started importing fish and dalo.

He said this would also create employment for locals to work in the dalo farms.

"This will help our country's economy as a lot of investors have already started coming to Fiji," he said.

Mr Umaria said the two main sectors they were looking at were agriculture and tourism.

He said sister city relationships were important for all municipalities.

"Sister city relationships are built on cultural understanding and peace through citizen diplomacy," he said.

Mr Umaria said meaningful sister city links would be an asset for any community and its nation.
