The agreement, signed in October last year during the state visit of Fiji Prime Minister here, would encourage cooperation between the two countries on the basis of equality, reciprocity and mutual benefit, he said.

The pact would cover areas like medical treatment referral, drugs and pharmaceutical products, medical consumable product, clinical service development, medical equipment, public health, communicable disease control and surveillance and hospital management.

Similar agreements and plan of cooperation have been signed with other countries like Hungary, Yemen, Seychelles, Tanzania and Austria in the past.

Dasmunsi said the Child Rights Amendment Bill would also be introduced.
