During a regional summit in Port Moresby, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi engaged in meetings with his counterparts from Papua New Guinea, Fiji, and New Zealand. The discussions aimed to explore avenues for enhanced cooperation and address regional concerns. In a special ceremony at Government House, the Governor-General of Papua New Guinea, Bob Dadae, bestowed upon Modi the esteemed Grand Companion of the Order of Logohu, the highest civilian award in the country, with recipients being granted the title of “chief.”
Furthermore, Modi held his inaugural bilateral meeting with Fiji’s Prime Minister, Sitiveni Rabuka, where the two leaders assessed the progress of their countries’ development partnership. In a gesture of recognition, on behalf of the Fijian president, Rabuka conferred upon Modi the Companion of the Order of Fiji, the highest honour in Fiji. Modi graciously dedicated this distinction to the people of India and the generations of Indo-Fijians who have played a pivotal role in fostering the special bond between the two nations.
