Solomon Islands plan to establish high commission office in Suva next year

The Solomon Islands government is planning to establish a High Commission office in Suva as early as next year, 2007.

In receiving the credentials of the Fiji’s new High Commissioner to Solomon Islands, His Excellency Ratu Isoa Tikoca, the Governor General His Excellency Sir Nathaniel Waena said the Solomon Islands government’s commitment to establish a High Commission in Suva is a testament to strengthen its presence in regional discussions.

Sir Waena stated that this further attests to the strong policy objective of the government to proactively strengthen its presence in regional dialogue and discussions. He added that the Solomon Islands government fully supported the establishment of a High Commission to ensure the two countries noble endeavors are forged.

Meanwhile, it is understood that the Republic of Fiji has welcomed the proposed establishment of Solomon Islands High Commission Office in Suva next year.

According to his Excellency Ratu Isoa Tikoca, he said Fiji is prepared to facilitate the establishment of the office. He also expressed that the proposed establishment of a High Commission in Suva in 2007 is warmly welcomed and the Fiji government is ready to facilitate its setting up.

Ratu Tikoca anticipates that the office will be a direct link between Solomon Islanders living in Fiji and the government of Solomon Islands.

It is expected that such development will no doubt be appreciated by the Solomon Islands community working, studying or living in Fiji.
