PRIME Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama has reaffirmed Fiji's commitment towards strengthening relations with Korea after congratulating Park Geun-hye as president of that country.

A government statement quotes the PM as congratulating President Geun-hye following her inauguration as the 18th president and highlighted her own commitment towards "wholesome development".

"Please accept my warmest congratulations, both personally and on behalf of the people of Fiji," the Prime Minister said. "Your inauguration as 18th president of the Republic of Korea is indeed historical and special in that it brings forth a renewed sense of hope and optimism to the people of your country and region and beyond.

"Your message and pledge to embark on the making of a 'Second Miracle on the Han River' premised on the new era of hope through economic rejuvenation, pursuit of happiness and flourishing culture, illustrates your strong conviction and commitment to ensuring balanced and wholesome development for your people based on equality and respect."
