Investment Fiji continues to work closely with the key government agencies to assist investors and exporters in their ventures.

In its bid to enhance this collaboration, the Fijian Government’s investment arm has been organising Inter-Agency workshops with the government agencies and departments.

Investment Fiji’s chief executive officer, Godo Mueller- Teut says such collaboration is significant to foster economic growth in the country.

“Synergies between Investment Fiji and other approval agencies will go a long way in assisting the investors and exporters in the country. Such close collaboration enhances investor confidence that leads to the economic prosperity,” Mr Mueller- Teut said.

As part of the Fijian Government’s “Look North Policy”, Investment Fiji is actively involved and working collaboratively with other relevant government agencies to boost trade and exports from the northern division.

Investment Fiji has conducted two inter-agency workshops in the Northern Division within the last three months.

The agencies include divisional commissioners, Fiji Revenue and Customs Service, Ministries of Forest, Fisheries, iTaukei Affairs Board, Fiji Roads Authority, Northern Development Programme and District Office Macuata.

“There are close to 20 exporters in the Northern Division with total exports amounting to more than $26 million in 2016.

“Our concerted efforts have helped these exporters to enter new markets, undergo trade exhibitions, workshops and capacity development programmes.

“Our close collaboration with key government agencies has also assisted the exporters to export with ease,” Mr Mueller- Teut added.

Investment Fiji has also initiated the Inter Agency Committee to facilitate and promote export and investment in the North, which will be spearheaded by the Office of the Commissioner Northern.
