THE Fiji Government receives the largest number of short-term donor-funded training offers from the Chinese Government.

And China says it is ready to give whatever assistance Fiji needs to further develop as a nation.

These were the sentiments exchanged during a meeting of top senior civil servants with Vice Minister of the International Department of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), Yu Hongjun on Wednesday.

More than 100 top and senior level civil servants underwent leadership training in one of China's top institutions to elevate their performance to meet growing demand of a developing state.

PSC permanent secretary Parmesh Chand said the Fijian Government continued to receive the largest number of short-term donor-funded training offers from the Chinese Government.

He said there were 109 officers from various government departments, statutory bodies and non-government organisations who had received various types of training in China that included six officers who were still pursuing long-term studies.

Mr Chand added the government was thankful for the assistance provided by China in strengthening the leadership capacity of senior government officials.
