Diplomat's mission to improve relations

By DAWN GIBSON
Saturday, February 22, 2014

DEPARTING Japanese ambassador Eiichi Oshima has expressed hope that the ties between Fiji and Japan will remain strong.

At a farewell reception at his residence this week, Mr Oshima said when he first joined the embassy, ties between Japan and Fiji were not promising.

"Japan-Fiji relationship was not good due to the issues relating to the PALM6 (the Sixth Pacific Islands Leaders Meeting) which was held in Japan in 2012," Mr Oshima explained.

"Based on the dynamics of our relations, I dedicated myself to pursuing my mission on improving Japan-Fiji relations on the basis of a two-pillar strategy."

He said this was done by promotion of high-level visits between both countries and the implementation of co-operation that delivered tangible benefits to both countries.
