The 2017 Roadshow of Guangdong Premium Products in Pacific held at the Grand Pacific Hotel was attended by more than 80 participants from China and Fiji.

The President of China Council for the Promotion of International Trade Guangdong Committee, Lin Tao said some members of the delegation already found their potential business partners.

“We have one LED lamp company who has already found his business partner here in Fiji. There are discussions underway between Chinese Tourism and Footwear companies to form partnerships with Fijian businesses,” Tao said.

Tao said the delegation was very happy with the Roadshow and the outcome was encouraging.

“Businesses from Guangdong have established connections with Fijian businesses and we will keep in touch for potential business partnerships”

The ccommittee hopes to arrange for similar visits to Fiji in future especially in agriculture and tourism.

“The cooperation between Guangdong and Fiji is already established given that  Guangdong accounts for one fourth of trade between Fiji and China,” Tao said.

Investment Fiji assisted in facilitating the Roadshow with close to 30 companies exhibiting their products and services. The companies were from the ourism, education, manufacturing, real estate and services industry.

Investment Fiji Chief Executive, Godo Mueller- Teut said the roadshow highlighted the growing trade, investment and economic relationship between China and Fiji.

“Interest from Chinese investors has increased over the years and it’s imperative that investors obtain a strong understanding of the policies in relation to investment approvals,” Mueller- Teut said.

Mueller- Teut has also urged Chinese investors to take advantage of Fiji’s pro-growth and stable development policies and tap into other sectors such as agriculture, manufacturing, tourism and ICT.

“The continued investment in infrastructure, education and training of our workforce all have implications, not only for the attractiveness of Fiji as a location to investors but also for the quality inward investment,” he said.

The Fijian Government has set the platform to encourage investments by putting in place a number of lucrative incentives aimed at increasing investor confidence, encouraging innovation, growth and investment”
