Businesses have reinvested, rearranged and made ad­justments to overcome the impacts of COVID-19 pandemic.

Fiji Commerce and Employers Federation (FCEF) president Vi­nay Narsey said this during the FCEF organised, Top Executives (TOPEX) Conference at Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa in Nadi, yesterday.

He said the theme “Resilience businesses ready for tomorrow – 2030” was a reflection to how busi­nesses adapted to and evolved dur­ing the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Businesses in Fiji are up against adversity – cyclones, floods, droughts and now COVID-19.

“Fiji showed its resilience on the back of what many thought was a situation that was out of hand.”

He said TOPEX provided an op­portunity for the business com­munity to explore ways of regen­erations and diversification to become more resilient from im­pending threats.

Participation

322 business delegates are partic­ipating in the conference, which ends today.

There has been a massive in­crease in participation, said Mr Narsey.

“TOPEX only gets better as the years progress,” Mr Narsey said.

Mr Narsey said FCEF would be restructuring in the coming months.

“It is only natural for FCEF to evolve, to not just stay abreast, but to forge innovative pathways in our ever-changing global business environment,” he said.

“The FCEF board and I are look­ing forward to reviewing and im­proving structures, processes and also the branding of FCEF.”

He said for an organisation which had stayed the same since its establishment, the evolution was important.
