US Commerce Chamber mean business

A member of the San Francisco African, American Chamber of Commerce wants to help improve infrastructure in Fiji.
Myles Clay Stevens is here on the invitation of Fiji’s Trade Commissioner to the US Jiten Singh.
Stevens is with a seven member delegation – on a fact finding mission.
Myles Stevens after meeting with the Prime Minister has grand plans about how he can help Fiji.
“We want to partner with Fiji companies in doing infrastructure here. We would like to bring some finance for that infrastructure here. We have overseas private agencies operations OPEC that will fund 70% of the infrastructure cost of the project so we only need 30% from the local contribution side of that."
The three day visit results from a presentation made to the US-trade and Investment Fiji mission that was here in September last year.
The Fiji Business Council was able to convince the Chamber to come back and explore business opportunities with locals.
