Distinguished colleagues,

This is my last opportunity to address you from the Chair of the Group of 77 and China at an ambassadorial meeting. At the handover meeting on 8th January, I’m happy to say that Fiji’s Minister for Foreign Affairs, Ratu Inoke Kubuabola, will be present to pass the torch on to Bolivia. I know that the 8th of January will be a momentous day for us all, a day which we are greatly looking forward to.
