In light of this, Mr Waikere said Fiji was keen to engage with India particularly in the dredging of its rivers and improving its berthing facilities.

“The delegation was pleased at the rates and quality of services available in the India maritime sector and Fiji was willing to engage more in enticing these investors into our shores.”

The Maritime India Summit held from April 14 to 16, 2016.
