PRESIDENT Jioji Konrote has briefed The Queen on Fiji’s rehabilitation efforts in the wake of Severe Tropical Cyclone Winston during an audience at Buckingham Palace on his visit to Britain.
A government statement said The Queen inquired about the progress of the relief effort and was given a broad outline by Mr Konrote of what was being done in affected areas.
Mr Konrote thanked Her Majesty for her personal gift to the relief effort.
In what British officials described as a warm encounter that went almost twice as long as scheduled, The Queen congratulated Fiji for its rugby sevens win against Great Britain at the Rio Olympics.
