Fiji exported a total of $1.85 billion worth of goods in 2021, an increase of 3.2 per cent from $1.79 billion when compared to 2020.

Minister for Commerce, Trade, Tourism and Transport Faiyaz Koya said this in Parliament on Tuesday night.

“While trade of several types of goods actual­ly decreased, trade and other goods increased marketing, domestic exports have shown an increase of 10 per cent compared to 2020 and seven per cent compared to 2019 which is a pre-pandem­ic period,” he said.

“In 2020, some of ex­ports showed an in­crease compared to 2019 and 2020.”

He said the minis­try was capitalising on these particu­lar growth areas by deepening its presence in the existing markets and continuously exploring oppor­tunities for newer markets.

“Fiji’s exports are tracking well and are con­tributing to our economic diversi­fication which is at the forefront of our plans as can be seen with the agro commodities and our economic recovery.” Mr Koya said.
