The Manubhai Industries Limited managing director Dinesh Patel says they have faith and trust in the economy and confidence in the Government.

Mr Patel was commenting at the opening of the Manubhai Industries’ new factory in Ba yesterday. Manubhai Industries is a subsidiary of the group.

He said: “This decision on our part was not only a business decision, but it demonstrates our faith and trust in the Fijian economy and more importantly our outmost confidence in the Government led by Mr Bainimarama.”

More than two years ago, the company lost its Polyurethane Foam and Nylon Rope manufacturing factory in a tragic fire.It did not walk away with the insurance money.

The company reinvested and rebuilt a modern factory.

Mr Patel said the Government had already set the platform for Fiji to surge forward and the democratic elections last year had further paved the way for much-needed economic growth and greater prosperity for our country in the future years.

The Manubhai Industries MD said during the reconstruction phase not a single member of their existing 50 staff was laid off.

“This is a testament that we hold the welfare of our staff and their families as one of our core corporate responsibilities.

The staff level has risen to 80 with our new set-up and we are confident that our investment will not only help Fiji with employment creation and import substitution but it will also help bring in additional much needed export revenue into the country,” he said.
