SUVA, Fiji (Fijilive, Feb. 23) - Fiji and Brazil have signed a joint communiqué establishing diplomatic relations between the two countries.

The communiqué was signed by Fiji’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Ambassador Isikia Savua and his Brazilian counterpart Ronaldo Mota Sardenberg in New York recently.

Savua said the signing marked a new and welcomed chapter in the history of Fiji’s diplomatic relations and symbolic of Fiji’s desire to strengthen the friendly relations that already exist between the people of Fiji and Brazil.

He said Fiji hoped to see the transfer of technology to help our fledging bio-fuels industry, advances in the conservation of forests; cooperation in ocean matters.

"Moreover the relations would also improve the mutual understanding of the tourism industry, coalesce on security concerns and exchange information in a transparent manner and perhaps no less important help us prepare our football team for the next World Cup," Savua said.

Brazil is the leading economic power and a regional leader in South America and is by far the largest and most populous.
