Investment Fiji’s CEO, Craig Strong had a follow on virtual discussion with Ms Rose Wete, official Representative of New Caledonia and New Caledonia Trade & Invest (NCT&I) team on facilitating a #NewCaledonia Economic Mission to Fiji when borders open for business. NCT &I plans to have a permanent representative based in Suva in the coming months.
Ms Wete stated on a Government to Government level, an MOU is in development stage for a framework of cooperation for 2021.
“In the interim we can connect with Investment Fiji and have cross investment opportunity sessions with NCT&I to capitalize on existing potential.”
NCT& I is keen to work closely with Investment Fiji for a e-seminar session to exchange information and connect both New Caledonia and Fijian businesses.
New Caledonia’s key interest is in the areas of Food and Beverages, Building and Construction, Banking, Energy, Forestry, Health and Medical Services, ICT, Water and Sanitation and Agriculture.
Mr Strong stated that Investment Fiji will plan for a virtual seminar in collaboration with NCT&I which will involve Investors and Exporters from both New Caledonia and Fiji.
