Fiji realtions with PalauSuva: Ratu Epeli’s tour to the sovereign state is the first for any Fijian head of state.
Speaking at a State dinner last night, Ratu Epeli says Fiji seeks to eventually formalize ties which would encourage more people to people contacts between the two nations. Fijians and Palauans will get to know each other better and to discuss possible areas of cooperation and trade, including partnerships in tourism, agriculture and fisheries.
He says Fiji is especially keen for Palau to join the new Pacific grouping that Fiji is forging with its neighbours.
