Minister commends Honorary Consul Incheon

Suva, November 20- Foreign Affairs Minister Ratu Inoke Kubuabola has commended the newly appointed Honorary Consul in Incheon in Korea Lee Kyong Ho for volunteering to be Fiji's representative in his area. 
Ratu Inoke when speaking to Lee Kyong Ho said that Incheon was an important gateway especially for Fijian dignitaries who used that port for transit.
He told Mr Ho that given the number of Fijian dignitaries who transit in Incheon Airport daily, he would be required to facilitate them on their arrivals.
Although it is unpaid, Ratu Inoke said the honorary consul would be responsible for the welfare of citizens within their assigned territory usually providing advice and guidance and assist citizens in their contacts with local authorities and businesses.
Given his network in Korea, Ratu Inoke was hopeful that Mr Ho would market Fiji extensively to his contacts and he would also bring in investors from Korea to Fiji.
Mr Ho was grateful for been given the honors to be face of Fiji in Incheon.
He reassured Ratu Inoke that the ministry could bank on him to do consular services for the nation as well as make a contribution to Fiji's economy.
Fiji's Ambassador to Korea Ambassador Filimone Kau said that he made a right decision in choosing Mr Ho.
