The Fiji Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the China Foreign Trade Centre signed a Memorandum of Understanding that creates new opportunities for Fijian products.

The signing at the Grand Pacific Hotel helps provide access to the Canton Fair (China import and export Fair) held in Guangzhou. This is China’s largest such fair with up to 200 trading countries and regions taking part, and up to 100,000 buyers.

“The signing of the MOU today gives our members access to the Canton Trade Fair,” Fiji Chamber of Commerce and Industry president Peter Mazey said.

“It is an opportune time for Fijian exporters to meet with not just China buyers but also other countries and all at one location.”

Mr Mazey said the MOU also provides for Fijian buyers to have security in their dealings.

“The fair is principally for high end products for buyers and sellers and it is held in April and October.

“China is interested in organic produce and now due to the frequent flights to Hong Kong we can meet a need for high class fresh product where price is not a concern to buyers.

“The MOUs we have signed with our counterparts in China creates new opportunities for Fijian products.”

Both parties signed the agreement on the common interest of developing mutually beneficial co-operation. Also the willingness by both parties to make positive contributions to strengthening ties between businesses in China and Fiji in their respective fields.
