The Prime Minister of Tuvalu, the Honorable Willy Telavi, today presented a cheque of $10,000.00 (FJD) to Fijian Prime Minister, Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama at the Sofitel hotel.

"This is a token of goodwill by the people of Tuvalu towards the displaced people who were victims of the recent flooding in Fiji," said Honorable Willy Telavi.

In a private ceremony, Prime Minister Bainimarama thanked his Tuvalu counterpart for the donation, expressing thanks on behalf of Fijians in a time of need.

According to the Prime Minister of Tuvalu, this token of kindness is the result of existing joint cooperation between the two countries. “We look forward to working closer with Fiji, especially as Tuvalu is the main door to the outside world,” Prime Minister Telavi said.
