Investment Fiji recently met with a delegation from the Fiji Chamber of Commerce [Hong Kong] office to strengthen bilateral partnership in trade and exports.
Investment Fiji Chief Executive Officer Godo Müller-Teut said discussions centred on creating collaborations in areas of exports to Hong Kong as well as establishing business networks to attract investors from Hong Kong to Fiji.
“The Delegation from Hong Kong expressed interest in areas such as Infrastructure, Tourism, Agriculture, Construction and Ancillary services.
“Investment Fiji will work closely with the Chamber to build business relationships with investors from Hong Kong with the eventual aim of enticing them to set up business in Fiji,” Mr Müller-Teut said.
Investment Fiji utilized the opportunity to inform the Hong Kong Delegation on the investment processes, incentives available to foreign investors when establishing business in Fiji including Tax Free Zone regions.
Discussions on Export opportunities for Fiji to Hong Kong included seafood, manufactured products such as body and beauty products as well as agriculture commodities like ginger and essential oils.
The Hong Kong team will be able to guide Fiji in terms of biosecurity issues, import requirements, and offer suggestions how Fiji’s products will be able to enter its market.
In addition, considerations were made on the possibilities of conducting capacity building programmes between Fijian investors and exporters and the Chamber of Commerce.
The visitors expressed interest and support to the suggestion on training and sharing technical knowledge.
