Fiji's Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama says he's seeking more money from the Asian Development Bank for flood relief.

The prime minister is in Manila for the ADB's annual meeting at the head of delegation that includes Fiji's central bank governor Barry Whiteside.

The Asian Development Bank has already provided a million dollars to Fiji to help deal with the aftermath of this year's devastating floods in the Western Division.

And Commodore Bainimarama has been quoted in the Fiji Times as saying he'd like to see the ADB provide a million more.
