Prime Minister and Fiji Rugby Union president Voreqe Bainimarama today received two new buses from the ambassador for the People’s Republic of China to Fiji, Qian Bo.

In a continued partnership between the two nations, Mr Bainimarama thanked the Chinese government saying the timely aid to the FRU would aid in saving transportation costs.

“The two new buses will lighten costs of $500,000 annually in transporting our Fiji and Fijiana 7s players to and from training,” he said.

Both buses that were manufactured and transported from the Guangdong Province in China had a total cost of around $300,000.
