CHINA is happy with Fiji's progress towards holding elections this year and has assured its support in whatever way possible.

The assurance was given by China's vice minister of the International Department of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), Yu Hongjun, who is leading a friendship delegation on a three-day visit to Fiji.

Mr Yu also commended the Look North Policy and the move in making China the focus of the policy.

"We respect the right of the people of Fiji to choose their development consistent with their own national characteristic and believe the people have the capability to move it forward in building their own future," he said.

Mr Yu said China remained committed to being a good neighbour.

The vice minister paid a courtesy visit to Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum and Foreign Minister Ratu Inoke Kubuabola and also opened a leadership summit at Suva's Holiday Inn on Monday.
