A number of issues will be discussed at the Nadi Chamber of Commerce and Industry-organised Business forum today.

The forum will be held at the Fiji National University Namaka campus and organisers expect around 100 delegates from various backgrounds in business and specialised sectors to be present.

The chamber said the resolutions from the forum will be forwarded to the Government for necessary action and implementation.

Chamber President, Dr Ram Raju, said the outcome and resolutions of this forum will enable the chamber to position itself for the coming years and also look ahead for opportunities for the country as a whole.

 

On the agenda

One of the focus of the forum will be Fiji-India trade relations.

Dr Raju said the relationship and trade between India and Fiji go a long way following the arrival of the first ship Leonidas which brought in the first batch of indentured labourers from the sub-continent.

“But the trade potential between Fiji and India has not been fully explored and there are numerous opportunities for both countries to enhance trade and culture,” he said.

“We commend the Indian Government which has been very wiling and committed towards the development of Fiji both economically and culturally for many decades now.

“Also coming out from the Tourism Fiji Industry day, we see a huge potential in our tourism industry as well.

“India offers great opportunities for Fiji as far as tourism is concerned and the number of tourists visiting our shores for leisure and business has seen a surge over the last few years.”

The forum will start at 9am and has presentations from various councils such as Fiji-India Business Council, Fiji-USA Business Council and Fiji-Australia Business Council.

This is along with other presentations from key stakeholders and government entities.
