KOICA FIJI OFFICE TO BOOST MEDICAL SERVICES.
The opening of the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) Fiji office will strengthen the bilateral relationship between Fiji and Korea and will open many opportunities for further developments in the medical arena in Fiji.
This was revealed by the outgoing Assistant Minister for Health and Medical Services Mrs Veena Bhatnagar as she delivered the congratulatory remarks in Suva last week.
Mrs Bhatnagar said that as a developing nation, Fiji has benefitted immensely in the past in terms of infrastructural developments and human resource capacity building, and opening the new office will further enhance these developments.
“I whole heartedly congratulate the Korean Government on the reopening of the KOICA office in Fiji, as this will open the door to many opportunities for the medical fraternity in regards to the provision of better healthcare services”, said Mrs Bhatnagar.
Korean ambassador to Fiji H.E. Seong-in Kim also expressed similar sentiments and said he was looking forward to working with his Fiji counterparts in improving the livelihood of people in Fiji.
“We have contributed to many developments in Fiji and with the opening of the new office, we will be able to collaborate more and hope to further assist in the provision of healthcare services.
Meanwhile the KOICA Fiji office will also be assisting neighboring Pacific Island countries as part of its commitment to socioeconomic development in the region.
