Investment Fiji partners with Outsource Fiji to foster growth for the Outsourcing Industry

A new partnership has been inked between Investment Fiji and Outsource Fiji, which will ensure the coordination of information and data sharing for investment facilitation while assisting investors in the outsourcing sector.

Investment Fiji Chief Executive Officer Kamal Chetty said the new agreement sets the framework for both organizations to work collaboratively in areas of mutual interest.

"This Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that has been signed today will allow us to achieve a more targeted approach in growing the outsourcing sector in Fiji," said Chetty.

"The collaboration between both organizations will go towards jointly strategizing investment projects in this space."

"The MOU will also place a focus on creating more job opportunities and continuing the growth of the sector post-pandemic," elaborated Chetty.

"During the past two years, the sector has maintained steady growth and provided employment opportunities to around 3000 Fijians," explained the Chief Executive Officer.

He added that Fiji has already secured its position by attracting renowned ICT investors to locate their back offices here, placing the country as the hub of the Pacific.

Following the signing of the new agreement, Investment Fiji and Outsource Fiji will establish and maintain a cooperative, equal and reciprocal network that will encourage an active exchange of data and information.

Both organizations will maintain a robust system in which all data and information will be shared and cohesive communication will be implemented in terms of policy measures and process requirements.

Outsource Fiji Executive Director Sagufta Janif said the new partnership will diversify Fiji’s economy.

"With this collaboration, we hope to foster a conducive environment for the outsourcing industry and continue our efforts to market Fiji as an outsourcing destination, with the end result of leading the industry to become a sustainable pillar for Fiji’s economy."

Janif also added that signing this MoU would ensure consistency in messaging about the outsourcing industry on global platforms.

The MoU was signed by Investment Fiji Chief Executive Officer Kamal Chetty and Outsource Fiji President James Mastapha.
