ATTORNEY-GENERAL RECEIVES NEW DANISH ENVOY TO FIJI

5/23/2017
Fiji and Denmark have explored cooperation in renewable energy production and in wider regional development at a meeting this morning between the Acting Prime Minister and Attorney-General, Hon. Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, and Denmark’s new Ambassador to Fiji, Mr. Tom Norring.
 
The Attorney-General updated Ambassador Norring on the Fijian Government’s efforts to increase access to basic services and create a more level playing field in Fijian society, specifically in the arenas of education, health and housing. The discussions also covered opportunities for collaboration between the two countries in developing Fiji’s health and construction sectors.

At the meeting, the Attorney-General sought support from Denmark for Fiji’s Presidency of COP23. The two men also discussed the possibility of Fiji and Denmark working together to advance bioenergy production in the Pacific.

“Denmark is on the cutting edge of renewable energy production – particularly in adopting bioenergy. We are keen to see greater use of biomass resources in Fiji, the Pacific, and throughout the developed world, as it is a clean and sustainable source of energy. We are very glad to welcome Ambassador Norring to Fiji, and look forward to working with Denmark to boost the share of renewable energy in Fiji and to develop a wide-range of other economic sectors,” said the Attorney-General.

Ambassador Norring presented his credentials to His Excellency the President Jioji Konrote at State House earlier in the day. He is accredited to Fiji and will be based in Canberra, Australia.
