Foreign Affairs Minister Ratu Inoke Kubuabola is holding high level meetings in New York on Fiji’s election plans.
Last night he met with Deputy Secretary-General of the Commonwealth Secretariat, Mmasekgoa Masire-Mwamba at the United Nations.
This was to follow-up on a number of issues that were discussed in Suva at the Commonwealth Secretariat’s visit to Fiji earlier this year.
It also explored ways in which the Commonwealth Secretariat and the Fijian Government can cooperate on implementing Fiji’s Roadmap to the 2014 elections.
The Commonwealth has confirmed it’s willing to assist with software for the Ministry of Finance’s debt management system.
It also wants to help in any area of competency that the Government may require in preparation for elections.
The Commonwealth Secretariat has indicated they want to send another delegation at the end of the constitution consultation process.
