Fiji’s ambassador to Brazil, Cama Tuiloma, presented his credentials to the President of Peru, Ollanta Humala Tasso.
As the first non-resident ambassador of Fiji to Peru, Mr Tuiloma joined four non-resident ambassadors who presented their credentials in a ceremony held in Lima recently.
Mr Tuiloma informed President Tasso that the Fiji-Peru relations continued to strengthen through high-level exchanges, resulting in the deepening of political mutual respect and trust between both countries.
Fiji looks forward to expanding and co-operating in business, tourism, culture and education, among other areas of sustainable development, and sound communication, co-ordination and support of international and regional efforts.
Peru’s economy is growing at the rate of seven per cent per annum and economic reforms in recent years have boosted the economy and reduced poverty.
Peru’s evolving business sector has benefited from increased access to financing.
Open-market policies that support trade and investment have been gradually been institutionalised. The government has entered into free trade pacts with a number of countries around the world.
Peru, together with Colombia, Chile and Mexico, signed an accord on June 6 creating the Pacific Alliance to more deeply integrate their economies, and develop new trade links with the Asia-Pacific region.
Last week, Mr Tuiloma met with the vice-minister and senior officials of Peru’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and held discussions also with the Minister for Agriculture, Production (Commerce and Trade) and Education.
Fiji and Peru have enjoyed cordial relations over the years and having a Fijian Ambassador to be accredited to Peru will improve bilateral relations between the two countries in the years to come.
