Permanent Secretary at the Office of the Prime Minister, Immigration and Sugar Industry and Acting Permanent Secretary Foreign Affairs, Mr Yogesh Karan received a farewell courtesy call from the Chargé d'affaires of the Embassy of Spain to Fiji, Mr Daniel Montilla Rubiales, last week on Friday 26th June 2020.

During the meeting, PS Karan thanked Mr Rubiales for his years of service to Fiji and his support towards various programs collaboratively undertaken by the Government of Spain through the Embassy of Spain and the development agencies in Fiji. He conveyed his best wishes to Mr Rubiales for his new appointment as the Deputy Head of Mission at the Embassy of Spain in Doha, Qatar.

PS Karan also acknowledged the cooperation between Fiji and Spain in important development areas, such as support for Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) and climate change.

Speaking on Fiji and Spain collaborations, Mr Rubiales said that the establishment of the Embassy of Spain in Fiji has been a milestone achievement in strengthening bilateral relations between the two nations. He said Spain will continue to support Fiji in its great leadership and call for global solidarity on urgent matters of climate change and oceans.

Mr Rubiales expressed his earnest appreciation to the Fijian Government for all the support given towards enhancing bilateral engagements with Spain. He also commended the Fijian Government’s swift actions on combatting the spread of COVID19.

“I would like to thank the Fijian Government for its prompt action in containing the COVID19 pandemic. Fiji is the most successful country with zero percent death rate; it’s a huge achievement that very few  countries have not been able to achieve and the Fijian government has been helpful in assisting the Spanish Embassy with the return of the Spanish tourists to their families and relatives,” Mr Rubiales said.

The Spanish diplomat spoke highly of the Fiji and Spain diplomatic collaborations which, have broadened in areas of peacekeeping, education and cultural exchange programs.

“Fiji and Spain are partners in peacekeeping missions, we have worked together in difficult and challenging operations such as the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) where Spanish soldiers worked closely with their Fijian counterparts.

He also highlighted the historic arrival of the first Spanish Navy vessel to Fiji in September 2019 as one of his best memories.

He stated that he will continue to pursue opportunities to advance Fiji and Spain’s common aspirations and the Pacific’s interests on climate change and oceans.

Mr Rubiales wraps up his four-year tenure in Fiji this month.

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 A
