The KOICA (Korea International Cooperation Agency) overseas office for the Pacific region is considering reopening its office in Fiji.
The clarification comes following comments made earlier by KOICA’s Vice President Mr. Sung-Ho, Choi in a meeting with Foreign Minister Ratu Inoke Kubuabola in Seoul Republic of Korea.
Vice President Choi said the move will bring about more cooperation and development assistance including the revival of the KOICA experts and volunteer schemes. Ratu Inoke thanked KOICA for the implementation of the key outcomes of the ROK-Pacific Island Countries cooperation framework and extended an invitation to Vice President Choi to participate in Pacific Island Development Forum (PIDF).
Projects currently undertaken by KOICA in Fiji include scholarships for graduate studies, public health, immigration and boarder control, disaster management and climate change.
