Fiji’s Prime Minister Josaia Voreqe (Frank) Bainimarama is hopeful that trade, investment and commercial relations between New Zealand and Fiji businesses will continue to grow.
He expressed his keenness as he welcomed an investment and trade delegation in Suva on April 25, 2015.
The delegation, led by Fiji New Zealand Business Council President Chandra Sen, comprised small and medium enterprises and the Kapoor couple (Suman and Pradeep) from Hamilton, specialised in hospitality and hotel management.
Mr Sen described the mission as ‘Unique,’ saying that it was ‘a first of its kind.’
“The trade mission consisted of six organisations which included the Fijian High Commission (Wellington), Honorary Counsel of Fiji in Auckland, Pacific Trade & Investment (Auckland), New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Trade and New Zealand Trade & Enterprise. We are excited about the immense potential that Fiji offers for commercial and industrial engagement,” he said.
“Restoration of democracy and the guaranteed equality for all citizens are reassuring with high level of political stability. This has opened up new avenues for engagement. The forthcoming business mission will hopefully explore those opportunities,” Mr Sen added.
