The commitment of domestic investors remains critical to strengthen the Fijian economy. Minister for Commerce, Trade, Tourism and Transport Faiyaz Koya made those comments at the opening of the Buy N Save Foodmart Pte Limited at Yako, outside Nadi on Friday.

Mr Koya has seen a number of businesses opening around the country. “Simply indicating investor confidence, as our economy makes a comeback,” he said.

He congratulated Buy N Save FoodMart Pte Ltd’s managing director Ameez Ali and his family for investment at Yako.

It was an investment of more than $200,000 providing 15 new jobs. “When Fijians like Ammez invest in our country, it sends out a positive sign to foreign investors that there is confidence to invest in Fiji,” he said.

“This venture demonstrates the accomplishment of an innovative gentleman – who sits at the helm of other supporting businesses namely Alternet Rental and Alternet Logistics,” he said.

“These are supporting industries, the job creators which create ripple benefits to Fijian economy such as creating more opportunities to support livelihood.” Mr Ali said like many other businesses, built on commitment, a business as young as Buy N Save FoodMart Pte Ltd needs to have a good support system.

“It would be amiss of me if I do not mention my parents and sister Zaherra Ali, friends and staff who have encouraged me to become a job creator within our society,” he said.

This is the second supermarket with the first launched a year ago in Laucala Beach, Nasinu. The supermarket opens seven days a week from 6am – 10pm and is complemented with a restaurant — ‘Tummy Treats’.
