The Fijian office’s representative, Karai Vuibau, notified the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) after he received orders from his government to close down the office. MOFA expressed its understanding of the Fijian government’s decision.
Vuibau said that the government of Fiji had made the decision after a thorough review of its offices around the world. [FULL STORY]
