Suva: China Wednesday donated a sea wall to Fiji to check coastal erosion.

Fiji`s Minister for Rural and Maritime Development Inia Seruiratu said this while commissioning the Kiuva village sea wall project that was funded by Beijing.

"The rise in sea level is leading to coastal erosion... There is noticeable infiltration of the sea into the village compound during high tide," Seruiratu said.

"The Kiuva sea wall project is one such example to address the sea level rise and to protect the village surroundings."
