Investment Fiji is working towards the Government’s goal to employ 100,000 people in the next 10 years.

Chief Executive Officer, Kamal Chetty said their aim was to provide the best service and the right information to investors that would attract them to Fiji for the benefit of the economy.

“It is very important what we perceive our investors as a country, so investment promotion agencies should focus on targeting the right kind of investors,” he said.

 

“We are here to facilitate investors, so we will have the right people that will go out in the market and attract the right investment that will have a direct impact on the economy.”

He said the leads they were working on were mostly the outsourcing space.

“The other one is tourism, real estate, agriculture and also other sectors like manufacturing.”

 

“There has been a lot of interest in Fiji and we are working closely with the outsourcing council and our Ministry to get all those interests across.”

“We will be spending a lot more time facilitating people and not monitoring people so that’s an exciting journey for a lot of the private sector.”

He added that Investment Fiji could spend more time finding opportunities for private sectors and connecting them to foreign markets.

 

Events:

There are a series of events lined up for investment Fiji.

The most recent ones are the Fiji, New Zealand and New Zealand Business Council conference next week and the Fiji International Trade Mission to Australia in July.

“We will be having potential investors, so we are working closely with our partners to get in the right type of investors and getting the right message out to the right people that will come.”

 

“The important thing is we will be doing B2B-meetings.”

For the July event, Mr Chetty said they were looking at engaging more than 20 private sectors to be part of the journey to Australia.

“It will be a private sector focus and we will talk about Fiji’s open to business and the opportunities in trying to get the deals and connections done.
