GOVERNMENT is working to establish a fully-serviced manufacturing and services zone in the Western Division.

Trade and Industry Minister Faiyaz Koya said this would attract further investments in the information and communications technology sector.

“The Fijian Government has continued to modernise our communication infrastructure, such as 4G plus connectivity around Fiji and internet access in approximately 80 per cent of the country,” he said.

“A robust investment climate has been maintained through the consistent and pro-business incentives provided.

“These include corporate tax of 20 per cent, streamlined income tax, tax concessions to encourage investment in ICT, clean energy and manufacturing.”

He said the manufacturing and services zone planned would stimulate economic activity and diversify the economic base.
