The Ministry of Foreign Affairs yesterday bid farewell to the outgoing Indian High Commissioner of India to Fiji, His Excellency, Mr Vishvas Sapkal. Earlier this week Mr Sapkal also paid his farewell call on the Minister for Defence, National Security and Foreign Affairs, Hon. Inia Seruiratu, at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs headquarters in Suva.
 
The Ministry thanked Mr Sapkal for his commitment and contributions to Fiji and also conveyed its best wishes to him for his future endeavors.
 
Mr Sapkal also conveyed his appreciation to all the senior government officials and non-government agencies for the support they had provided during his term of service here in Fiji.
 
Mr Sapkal said that Fiji has become his second home and he will be departing with unforgettable memories of great friendship, kind gesture and bula smiles.
 
“I would like to sincerely acknowledge the support provided by the Fijian President, the Hon. Prime Minister, the Ministers and the Permanent Secretaries. It has been an honour to serve in Fiji and indeed Fiji-India has cemented its bilateral relationship to the next level.
 
“Our bilateral relationship is multifaceted and it’s really good in development spheres whether it is agriculture, health sector, climate change, education, human resources. Fiji was one of the first founding members of the International Solar Alliance (ISA) and one of the first 15 countries that signed and ratified the framework agreement of the ISA and our cooperation is going really well.
 
“Our cooperation in strengthening democracy is really strong as well and since Fiji and India are both developing nations, as such we would like to share expertise in various sectors. In the agriculture sector our cooperation in the sugar industry is going well.

“In human resources development every year almost 150 Fijians get trained in various courses in India and around 30 students go for the long-term scholarships in India for various undergraduate, postgraduate and doctorate courses,” Mr Sapkal said.

Several members of Public Accounts Committee of the Fijian Parliament visiting Wellington this week took advantage of a visit to the Wellington City Council’s Southern Landfill yesterday to glean a few ideas for waste management in Fiji. This included the Hon. Alexander O’Connor, Assistant Minister for Health, Ratu Suliano Matanitobua, Opposition parliamentarian and Ms. Priya Chand, Parliamentary Secretary who were accompanied by the Fiji High Commission New Zealand staff.

The Southern landfill is an impressive setup particularly as it focuses on recycling and minimising the damage to the environment at the landfill.

 

Other remarkable features of the landfill were its gas collection, electricity regeneration, green waste mulching and water table management. The Hon. O’Connor, an engineer by profession, was particularly impressed and intends to develop a few ideas for the Fijian Government to consider.

 

The PAC members were invited to attend the Pacific PAC training seminar in Wellington facilitated by UNDP from the 12th to the 13th December.

The PAC members, including Deputy Chair, Hon. Mohammed Dean, MP, were hosted to afternoon tea at the Fiji Chancery.  It was an opportunity for the Parliamentarians to meet the Locally Engaged Staff at the Mission and also update the staff on the work and concerns of the Public Accounts Committee.
