The 2018/2019 national budget continues the sustainable and consistent policies of the government to provide targeted support to Fijians and Fijian businesses.
Trade Minister Faiyaz Koya says better roads and ports, improved connectivity and the ability to make a living and contribute to the economy are some of the reasons why Fiji is the best place to do business.
Koya says last year, total investments were around 27 percent of the GDP, which amounts to $2.6 billion.
“Private sector and public enterprises investment made up 18.5 percent of the GDP or $1.8 billion. This upward trajectory is expected to continue in 2018 and 2019.”
He says this growth means Fiji is still the preferred investment destination, not only for new investors but for domestic and foreign investors, who are re-investing into the country.
