The Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism (MITT) continues to support the Textile, Clothing and Footwear (TCF) Council as part of its commitment to support key industries that enhance exports of Fijian Made – Fijian Sewn products.

The Fijian Government recognizes the TCF industry as a fundamental contributor towards growth of the Fijian economy through trade and employment creation and has continued to support the industry in various ways over 10 years.

In honouring its commitment towards developing this sector, the MITT further boosted its support by providing a grant of FJ$100,000 this financial year.

In today’s globally competitive environment, our TCF industry also faces numerous challenges. The marketing grant was introduced in 2009 by the Fijian Government to assist the industry in adapting to the changing trade environment.

The TCF sector has over the years reinvented itself with the ability to attract a diverse range of markets. This year, the TCF Council plans to expand its market influence through further research and development to secure new markets for its Fijian Made – Fijian Sewn products.

The Fijian Government has and will continue to complement the efforts of the TCF Council to ensure the viability and sustainability of our growing TCF industry.
