THE Fijian Embassy in Tokyo last week commissioned Chikayuki Shimizu as Fiji's Honorary Consul in Ebetsu, Hokkaido in Japan.

The inauguration was marked by the official handing over of the Consular Commission, which was signed by Fijian Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs Voreqe Bainimarama, by Fiji's ambassador to Japan Isikeli Mataitoga to Mr. Shimizu.

Mr Mataitoga said it this was a reflection of the goodwill enjoyed between Japan and Fiji since 1970 in the promotion of economic, commercial and people-to-people relations between the two countries.

"It is hoped that the presence of the new Consulate office will also promote greater public diplomacy in the form of people to people exchanges through sports, educational and cultural with the people of Hokkaido," he said.
