Fiji – Catherine Colonna’s visit to Suva (July 25, 2023)


On July 25, Catherine Colonna will be in Suva, Fiji. This will be the first visit to that country by a Minister of Foreign Affairs and follows President Macron’s trip to Oceania, which reflected France’s wish to become more engaged in the region.

The Minister will meet with the Prime Minister of Fiji, Sitiveni Rabuka, and will express our desire to step up our dialogue with that country, which shares a maritime border with New Caledonia and is therefore France’s neighbor.

She will meet with the Deputy Secretary General of the Pacific Islands Forum, a major regional organization that fosters cooperation among its members – the countries and territories of the Pacific Islands – including New Caledonia and French Polynesia, as well as Wallis and Futuna.
