Fiji’s exporters were acknowledged for their contribution in nation building at the Prime Ministers International Business Awards in Suva last night.
Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says not only should exporters be praised but their success should be celebrated.
Bainimarama gave special and well deserved recognition to exporters who have done wonders in putting Fijian made products and services in markets around the world.
“We will honor those businesses that, like Fiji itself, have punched above their weight. We recognize those businesses that have been truly innovative, and that have produced a quality of product or service that has made our nation proud. We will honor those that dared to push the limits and those that have embraced sustainability and inclusivity in their businesses.”
Eleven exporters were awarded last night with the Tappoo Group of Companies scooping two awards, Supreme Award and Re-Exporter of the Year Award.
