FIJI students studying in Morocco have been encouraged to pursue their studies with vigour.

Foreign Affairs Minister Ratu Inoke Kubuabola and senior training adviser from the Public Service Commission (PSC) Shyreen Bashir, met the three second-year students in Settat, Morocco, and gave them the encouragement.

They are among 11 recipients of scholarships provided by the Kingdom of Morocco.

The students — Amitesh Narayan, Aaqib Rahaman and Tevita Rokotovitovi — have successfully completed their six-months of French language studies and are now pursuing their respective disciplines.

Ratu Inoke encouraged them to continue their studies with vigour and determination amid the challenges encountered in the new environment.

He said the successful completion of their studies would add to Fiji's capacity and positively contribute to nation-building.

The students have identified certain issues and challenges which Ms Bashir has noted for further discussions with the PSC and the International Co-operation Division of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation.
