Ms Bishop also indicated that Australia has now lifted all bans imposed on Fiji also paving the way for the restoration of defence ties.

This comes after eight years of sanctions.

Bishop says the Australian Government is also delighted with the democratic process undertaken.

She also indicated that Fiji has been included in the Work and Holiday Visa program which is now underway.

“I confirm to Prime Minister Bainimarama today that last legal hurdle had been removed and now all of the defence sanctions have gone and there can be full cooperation at the defence level. I think we shortly be seeing senior defence people from Australia visiting Fiji and a senior defence people from Fiji visiting Australia,” Bishop said.
