Over the last three years China has become a major trade partner of Fiji with imports from China & Hong Kong significantly increasing from $439m in 2012 to $612m in 2013 and $734m in 2014.
Investment CEO Godo Muller-Teut made these comments at the Symposium for commemorating the 40th Anniversary of the establishment of China-Fiji Diplomatic Relations in Suva yesterday.
He says between 2010 and 2014 China’s visitor arrival to Fiji grew an average 13 percent annually reaching $27,000 in 2014.
Muller-Teut says this year is a monumental one as it marks the first Charter flight from China during Chinese New Year celebrations.
Based on visitor arrival numbers, arrivals from China between April and June 2015, compared to the same period last year had increased a significant 70.5%.
He says Investment Fiji is closely working with investors on After-Care support services to maximize the long-term benefits.
