Trade relations between the United States and Fiji will expand despite the impact of COVID-19.
This was revealed by the US Ambassador to Fiji Joseph Cella during a press conference after a Business and Economic Development roundtable discussion yesterday.
U.S Ambassador Joseph Cella revealed that a state in the U.S is ready to start bilateral trade with Fiji.
While the tourism sector is on pause due to COVID-19, Ambassador Cella pointed out that the United States is still open for business.
Minister for Trade Faiyaz Koya says businesses opening up in the world’s largest economy means that demand for products exported from Fiji will slowly increase.
He adds for Fiji to get back to some form of normalcy in trade, the way of doing business has to change.
Two representatives from the state of Texas also spoke about possible trade opportunities, especially in areas of agriculture and high tech.
