CHINA and Fiji have once again established diplomatic ties to enhance the existing relationship between the two countries.

Suva City Council special administrator Chandu Umaria and the deputy mayor of Shaoxing Municipal People's Government Xu Mingguang of China signed a memorandum of understanding at the SCC chambers on Monday.

Mr Umaria said the existing ties with the cities of China, namely Beihai, Guangdong, Zhenjiang and now Shaoxing would strengthen the friendship links between China and Fiji through the establishment of mutual understanding.

He said the sealing of this new agreement would allow Shaoxing City and the Suva City to establish economic relations through trade and investment.

"The sister-city relationship initiative with Shaoxing City will encourage and enhance mutual understanding and friendly co-operation between the people of China and Fiji through trade, tourism, culture, fisheries, and areas that promote the development and prosperity of our people, our country and our economy."

He said the agreement would be important to the tourism sector of both governments through the establishment of cultural exchange programs, which would in return generate revenue to both cities' economy.
