Fiji is all set to be promoted at the 2nd Pacific Trade Fair in a big way which begins in New Caledonia’s capital, Noumea, today.
Because of its huge success last year, organisers Rézo Médias and their partners have decided to once again manage the four-day event; this time with the theme of promoting and celebrating Fiji.
As guests of honour, Fiji has been reserved a prime exhibition stand located close to the main events podium where daily performances, competitions and other organised events are to take place.
Last year’s event was attended by 150 exhibitors from New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Tahiti, Wallis and Futuna, as well as Australia and New Zealand; and welcomed around 6500 visitors per day.
This year organisers are expecting it to be bigger and better with 160 exhibitors from nine different countries and more than 26,000 visitors projected.
Representatives from Fiji to the trade fair include a delegation of performers from the University of the South Pacific’s Oceania Centre for Creative Arts; as well as representatives from Tourism Fiji, Rosie Holidays, Food Processors and Punjas.
With the assistance of the Government of New Caledonia and facilitated by the French Embassy in Suva, this is an exciting opportunity to, not only showcase Fiji’s rich and diverse culture and talents but also to promote economic relations and co-operation with Fiji’s French-speaking neighbours.
