Fiji and norway discuss COOPERATION IN RENEWABLE ENERGY DEVELOPMENT

3/6/2017
Fiji and Norway have explored mutual cooperation in the renewable energy sector at a meeting in Suva between Prime Minster Voreqe Bainimarama and Norwegian Foreign Minister Hon. Tone Skogen.

Prime Minister Bainimarama noted Norway’s successful record in renewable energy, particularly with regards to vocational training offerings, and expressed Fiji’s interest in pursuing development cooperation and knowledge transfer in the renewables sector.

The meeting also covered bilateral collaboration in aqua-agriculture development.

At the meeting, Prime Minister Bainimarama outlined Fiji’s leadership agenda at the Conference of Parties (COP 23), and sought Norway’s commitment to assist with preparations in the lead-up to the COP 23 negotiations and to the United Nations Oceans Conference, which Fiji will co-host in June 2017.

The Prime Minister concluded the meeting by thanking the Norwegian Government for their significant contributions to the peacekeeping efforts through NATO and the UN.
