Fiji’s Roving Ambassador to the Pacific Islands Mrs Litia Mawi presented her Credentials to the President of the Republic of the Marshall Islands, His Excellency Christopher Jorebon Loeak in Majuro this week on Wednesday 24th October 2012. In her statement of presentation, Ambassador Mawi assured His Excellency President Loeak and the Cabinet Ministers who were present that the successful conduct of the major part of the Electronic Voter Registration and the recent completion of the public consultations on the new constitution were themselves exceptional indicators of Fiji’s determined quest in building a better Fiji for all.
Furthermore, Fiji’s recent election as Chair of G77 in 2013 was itself a mark of international confidence in her capacity to be an exemplary developing nation state in the 21st century. In this way, Fiji’s closer engagement with the Pacific family is aimed at maximizing all the opportunities that abound through regional and international partnerships and networks for sharing solutions to challenges facing Pacific peoples. Ambassador Mawi also discussed potential areas for South-South Cooperation with a number of Ministers and Senior Government Officials under the MOU on Development Cooperation signed between the President of the Republic of the Marshall Islands and the Prime Minister of Fiji in 2011 and also met with the Fijian Community working in the Republic of the Marshall Islands, including the Teachers recently deployed by Fiji under the Fiji Volunteer Scheme.
