Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama farewelled his New Zealand counterpart Rt. Hon. Jacinda Ardern at the Nausori International Airport this morning.
PM Bainimarama was accompanied by the Minister for Foreign Affairs Hon. Inia Seruiratu, Commissioner of Police Sitiveni Qiliho and Fiji’s High Commissioner to New Zealand Filimone Waqabaca.
PM Ardern inspected a Guard of Honor before departing for the Western Division where she will pay her respects at the Lautoka Mosque and meet the local Muslim community as well as open the Nadi branch of the Fiji Women’s Crisis Centre later today.
The series of meetings officiated by PM Ardern on her first official visit has made substantial contribution towards the two countries mutual fight against climate change and having a safer border and drug control through an agreement with the Fiji Police Force.
