Fiji’s peacekeeping and disaster relief efforts saw a capital infusion, of nearly $10 million FJD in aid, from China today.

Minister of Defence and National Security – Ratu Inoke Kubuabola, signed an agreement to receive military aid valued at $9.5 million Fijian dollars, from the Chinese government, marking a significant increase from the $6.3 million dollars, that had been previously pledged in Suva last year.

The aid will be used by the Fiji Military Forces to procure equipment that will bolster the country’s ability, to quickly and effectively respond to emergencies, in addition to facilitating vital training and preparation, for Fijian Peacekeepers’ overseas missions.

Thanks to proper training and a culture of commitment, Fiji has earned an out sized and globally-praised role in United Nations peacekeeping — a reputation that will be supported by this aid, for years to come.
