Togo and Fiji have proceeded to establish diplomatic relations, on Thursday in New York. The protocol was signed by representatives of both countries at the United Nations, Kodjo Ménan for Togo and Peter Thomson for Fiji.
Fiji (900,000 inhabitants approx.) consists of 322 islands, of which about one third are inhabited. The two most important islands are Viti Levu and Vanua Levu. Viti Levu hosts the capital Suva and almost three quarters of the population lives there.
This country with forests, minerals and fish resources, is one of the most developed economies of the Pacific Islands, despite a subsistence sector in the economy which remains important.
