Fiji’s investor confidence continues to grow as our economy is anticipated to maintain its positive growth trend.
More areas of investment were identified during the recent state visit to Australia by Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama.
Minister for Industry and Trade Premila Kumar says the state visit has increased interest from Australian businesses but they must follow the right process.
“So when investors come in we have a better knowledge of how to assist them in realizing some of the projects they want to do particularly in waste recycling area.”
Foreign Affairs Minister Inia Seruiratu says the government will do whatever it takes to move the country forward and the setting up of a solid economic platform is vital to boost investor confidence.
“Our one particular area of interest was waste management and of course the well utilization of water as well, I think for us in Fiji these are very critical areas and this is the good thing of learning the best practices from other countries which we can perhaps replicate in our own countries when we have the opportunity”
The government has also created an investor business portal to assist businessmen and women wanting to spend money in Fiji.
