Government is calling for expressions of interest from the business community and individuals wishing to join the Trade and Investment Mission to New Caledonia.
This is being organised by the Ministry of Industry and Trade in partnership with Investment Fiji.
The mission, expected to eventuate towards the end of the first quarter, is part of Government’s bid to continuously position Fiji as an internationally competitive economy.
It follows the success of the trade mission to Papua New Guinea in April last year.
The closing date for submissions will be on this Friday January 24.
In a recent report, the Permanent Secretary for Industry and Trade, Shaheen Ali said: “New Caledonia (which is part of the MSG through the FLNKS Political Party), has enormous untapped opportunities for Fijian companies.”
An investment Fiji statement said: “New Caledonia offers opportunities for business and partnership in the manufacturing sector, food sector, textile, clothing and footwear sector, bottled water, fisheries and forestry sector, paper products, mining and many others.”
The Trade and Investment Mission will underscore the vast potential and opportunities which exists in Fiji, the statement read.
“It will enable Fijian businesses to create strategic links with their counterparts in New Caledonia. At the same time, the Mission will promote Fijian-made and Fijian-grown products in New Caledonia.”
