Prime Minister Bainimarama Congratulates Tuvaluan Counterpart

Fijian Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama has sent a congratulatory message to his newly elected Tuvaluan counterpart, Enele Sosene Sopoaga.

Mr Sopoaga was sworn in as Prime Minister last Monday, August 5, 2013.

Prime Minister Bainimarama assured Mr Sopoaga of the Fijian Government’s continued commitment and co-operation with Tuvalu.

“With your leadership and support, I sincerely believe we can build on existing partnerships and forge together the new and innovative directions visualized for our Pacific region,” Commodore Bainimarama said.

“You are assured of the continued commitment of my Government to the strengthening of warm and friendly relations that exist between our two Governments and people during your tenure and the years to
come.”

Fiji, which is by far Tuvalu’s largest source of imports, established diplomatic relations with the island nation in 1979.
