The Minister for Industry, Trade, Tourism, Local Gov­ernment, Housing and Com­munity Development, Premila Kumar met with the President and members of the Hong Kong-Fiji Chamber of Commerce on Sunday.

The Minister together with the Permanent Secretary for Indus­try, Trade and Tourism, Shaheen Ali, Trade Commissioner/Consul-General to China, Yolinda Chan, Honorary Consul Desmond Lee and senior officials met with the Cham­ber of Commerce to discuss their future trade and investment plans.

Minister Kumar were in Hong Kong on their way to China’s sec­ond Belt and Road Forum for Inter­national Co-operation in Beijing, which begins this week.

The Chamber of Commerce was established in 2012, to bring togeth­er the business community with interest to undertake business with Fiji.

Investment projects

Since then, a total of 26 invest­ment projects worth over $95.6 mil­lion has been registered.

The Chamber of Commerce has also used events such as the Hong Kong Sevens to promote Fiji to the wider business community.

Progress in increasing invest­ments from Hong Kong into Fiji has commenced and will further build on the co-operation between the Chamber and the Trade Com­mission/Consulate-General, to increase business to business link­ages.

“Fiji is open for business and the Fijian Government is ready to provide support in the investment process to genuine investors who bring in new ideas, knowledge and technology into the country,” said Ms Kumar.

The Minister also reiterated that Fiji as the hub of the Pacific, has a lot to offer in terms of logistics, transportation, communication, trade, educated English speaking workforce and the best internet connectivity in the region.

“Therefore, investors from Hong Kong will have access to a larger market in the Pacific region.”

The President of the Chamber of Commerce stated that their mem­bers are seriously interested in do­ing business in Fiji, and are explor­ing new areas of investing in Fiji.

The Minister visited Macao to launch the Macau-Fiji Chamber of Commerce yesterday. This will es­tablish formal business-to-business between Fiji and Macau.

Ms Kumar will also be meeting the Acting Chief Administrator Gen­eral, Chan Hoi Fan and the Acting Commissioner, Wang Dong.
