FIJI is making its first appearance at the Commonwealth Games Federation General Assembly after a break of seven years.

Fiji was suspended from the Commonwealth in 2007 and was also barred from competing in the Commonwealth Games.

Fiji's suspension from the Commonwealth Games was lifted earlier this year.

The Fiji Commonwealth Games Association (CGA) is being represented at the General Assembly by Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee (FASANOC) secretary general Lorraine Mar and chef de mission Lyndall Fisher.

"The meeting started yesterday (July 21) with informal workshops on decisions that will be made during today's (yesterday) formal general assembly agenda," Mar said.
