NZ businesses on trade and investment mission in Fiji

Auckland, March 11:? A delegation of overseas business people and investors will be in Suva on March 19 to look at trading and investment opportunities in Fiji. The business delegates are keen to engage with local businesses with a view to exploring possibilities during their 3-day stay in the country.

The mission comprises 12 established and successful business people based in New Zealand with business links in the region as well as outside. Coming from wide ranging business backgrounds, the delegates are interested in real estate, hospitality, tourism, agribusiness, publishing and media, manufacturing, timber, forestry, commodity trading, information technology, the textile, clothing and footwear sector besides knowledge management and education fields.

The trade and investment mission has been organised by the New Zealand office of Pacific Islands Trade & Invest, the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat?s trade body and the High Commission of Fiji in New Zealand with local support from Investment Fiji, Fiji?s trade and export promotion agency.

Some of the delegates are already trading and doing business in Fiji and would like to consider other opportunities to expand their business links. It would be an excellent opportunity for Fiji businesspeople and entrepreneurs to interact with the delegates during the visit.

The delegates will conduct presentations about their businesses and their specific interest in Fiji at a session at the Tanoa Plaza Hotel at 2-30 pm on Tuesday, March 19.

Businesspeople and entrepreneurs desirous of attending these presentations and meeting with the businesspeople and investors are requested to register their interest by emailing Manuel Valdez at manuel.v@pacifictradeinvest.com before noon on Friday, March 15.
