Fiji has been commended for its work in the global arena on the effects of climate change.
New French Ambassador Jean-Francois Fitou says it’s clear Fiji has led the way on the climate fight raising awareness and making it a global hot topic.
Ambassador Fitou says his government will work to strengthen ties with Fiji as well as push for stronger climate action which has become a key agenda for France as well.
“In our view, Fiji is one key partner on climate change, because it has been aware of climate change much before most countries in the world and it has been incredibly vocal and incredibly convincing. Now I guess that the majority of countries in the world align with Fiji’s concerns.”
Meanwhile, New Caledonia’s envoy to Fiji, Rose Wete says expanding the cultural exchange programme in Fiji will be one of her key priorities in addition to strengthening the people to people links.
Wete also notes that she will be working toward the formalisation of relations between Fiji and New Caledonia through a joint framework agreement.
Wete is the first New Caledonia envoy to Fiji.
