The Government and the Fiji Development Bank will work towards financing growth in the agricultural, tourism and manufacturing sectors.
This was highlighted by President Major General Ret’d Jioji Konrote who says FDB with government’s support will provide financial assistance to farmers to expand their produce.
He says Fiji’s National Development Plan aims to make Fiji a manufacturing hub of the Pacific.
Konrote adds with Fiji’s educated and skilled workforce, competitive wage rates and enabling environments Fiji meets the profile for a hub.
The President also revealed, in the next five years, the tourism industry will expand to niche segments such as sports, cruise, wedding and honeymoon tourism, international conference and entertainment events, including wellness tourism.
He says there is great potential for growth for SMEs in this area.
