Minister for Industry Trade and Tourism, Faiyaz Koya officially opened the inaugural Fiji-Japan Trade and Investment Symposium in Nadi this morning, as the two countries strengthen relations and the possibility of establishing a bilateral trade council.

Bilateral trade flows have increased in recent years with the total trade value growing from $152.6 million in 2013 to $257.5 million in 2017- an increase of 69 per cent, while on average, trade between the two countries has surged to 21 per cent annually for the past five years.

The two-day symposium at the Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa on Denarau Island includes a large host of tourism and trade operators and Japanese Government officials led by Japan’s Parliamentary Vice-Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, Katsunori Takahashi.

Both Ministers noted that the recent resumption of direct flights between Japan’s Narita Airport and the Nadi Airport by Fiji Airways would considerably boost tourism between the two countries.
