A welcome progress

THE New Zealand Government has warmly welcomed Fiji's progress and preparations for the September election.

Newly-appointed acting Head of Mission Mark Ramsden says his government is firmly committed to the process and they are doing it in tangible ways, such as providing technical support for the elections office.

"I'd like to think that hosting the Waitangi Day this year is a way we can support Fiji-NZ relationship and also acknowledge that we are in a special year in Fiji and we are looking forward towards election which is the most positive development from our point of view," Mr Ramsden said.

Australian acting High Commissioner Glen Miles said the celebration of NZ and Australia's national days in Fiji was a reflection of the movement they had seen in Fiji's progress towards democracy and elections later this year.
