Council wants more Fijian businesses in PNG
September 1, 2015 1:15 am
The PNG/Fiji Business Council is looking at establishing more Fijian businesses in Papua New Guinea.
There are about eight Fijian businesses currently in PNG.
PNG/Fiji Business Council Chair Nauzab Fareed says they want others to follow suit.
‘’If they have a clear manufacturing or business plan, I’m sure that they can go to PNG and take it to the next level. During the last 12 months we have assisted at least three to four firms to explore the PNG market and to understand whether it is possible for them to make investments’’.
Nouzab Fareed who has been re-elected chairman of the Council says the few businesses already there, have been doing well with increased orders and exports.
The only problem the Council faces is the difference in bio-security rules for exports in both countries.
