Torika Tokalau
Tuesday, April 15, 2014

CHINA should introduce one of its airlines and have direct flights to Fiji.

This was a proposal by the Foreign Affairs Minister Ratu Inoke Kubuabola during a courtesy visit in Suva yesterday by Lu Guohao, the vice director-general of the Department of Foreign Affairs of the People's Government of Zhejiang Province.

The proposal by Ratu Inoke would enhance the spirit of co-operation between the two countries and boost tourism from China, a statement from the Information Ministry read.

Discussions were also held on a potential memorandum of understanding between Zhejiang Province and a sister province to be selected from Fiji for a cultural and friendship exchange program.

Mr Guohao discussed the potential for linkage with the Zhejiang Provincial People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries.

The statement said Zhejiang has had a long tradition of interacting with foreign countries and wished to explore opportunities to further enhance relations with Fiji. The province is traditionally known as the "Land of Fish and Rice" and is one of the richest in China.
