2:53 pm on 28 October 2014

The New Zealand Parliament is this week hosting a delegation from the Fiji Parliament, marking the resumption of official contact between the two bodies.

The delegation, which is led by Fiji's Deputy Speaker, Ruveni Nadalo, includes the whips from both the government and the opposition parties.

The visit is being run by the United Nations Development Programme.

The New Zealand Speaker, David Carter, says after a protracted period without a parliament, Fiji can expect this country's full support and assistance to make its return to parliamentary democracy a smooth and successful one.
