New Delhi: Further discussions have been held regarding the already signed Memorandum of Understanding between Fiji and India, which will form the basis of the new Air Services Agreement between the two countries.

Attorney General and Minister for Civil Aviation, Aiyaz Sayed‑Khaiyum had a meeting with the Indian Minister for Civil Aviation Shri P Ashok Gajapathi Raju yesterday.

They also discussed the need to explore new avenues to further strengthen India’s engagement with the whole Pacific region.

Sayed-Khaiyum informed the Minister that from April, there will be direct flight routes from Fiji to Singapore.

He says the shorter travel time together with visa on arrivals for Indians presents an opportunity for more trade and investment for both countries and also for the region, through his country.

The Attorney General also thanked the Indian Government for its assistance towards Fiji’s progress over the years.

Sayed-Khaiyum says it is evident that Fiji has very close ties with India and this has been strengthened by the visit of the Indian Prime Minister to the country in 2014. (Source: http://fijivillage.com)
