Strengthening business value supply chains in the Pacific region is the main focus of a two-day workshop that will be conducted by two major business organisations in the Pacific.
Pacific Islands Private Sector Organisation (PIPSO), in collaboration with ACP (African, Caribbean and Pacific states)  Business Climate Facility (BiZClim) will team up with various government and non-government officials to discuss the challenges faced by small and medium enterprises.
The theme of the workshop is ‘ Building Business Value Supply Chain in the Pacific Region’ and will  will take place at the Tanoa International Hotel, in Nadi, from the 11 to 12 October.
The statement released by PIPSO revealed that the failure to manage business in the Pacific was due to the global economic crisis and constant increase in fuel price.
“There are large corporate multinationals that operates in this region in the mining, gas, fisheries and tourism sectors but the connection of these corporate companies to SMEs remains significantly underdeveloped,” PIPSO stated.
“The workshop will aim at presenting a diagnostic study which will identify the opportunities, the challenges, mitigating factors and the potential of corporate and SMEs companies to be engaged in the value supply chain.
Selected value chains are tourism, agro processing, fisheries, culture and creative.
