Investment Fiji’s CEO, Craig Strong with Board Chair, Jenny Seeto met with Australia’s High Commissioner to Fiji, H.E. John Feakes.
Discussions centered around the potential trans-Tasman bubble, collaboration on training for staff, market access and connecting with businesses.
Australia’s High Commissioner to Fiji, John Feakes, said once the work is done to open up the Trans-Tasman bubble, they will look very quickly at including Fiji.
“Australia is mindful of the impact on the tourism sector and business in general and certainly with the Fijian Government working towards improving the ‘Ease of Doing Business’, we need to start on business activity within Australia, New Zealand and Fiji.”
Mr Strong discussed on how Investment Fiji is working with Trade Offices and Embassies in sharing information and strategizing on ways to assist exporters and investors.
“With a Strategic reset for Investment Fiji, our priority is connecting with our key trading partners. We’ve had discussions with key representatives from the Australian counterparts on advancing trade and investment by focusing on a prescriptive approach to trade and investment in key markets.”
