Fiji will soon become a hub of activities for potential Chinese investors.
This has been confirmed by Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama who has returned from a recent trip to China.
Commodore Bainimarama says the Chinese have shown great interest in investing in Fiji. “We will soon have Chinese investment in areas of food processing, housing, power generation and textile industries,” he said.
Commodore Bainimarama said a number of Fiji’s strongest partners were based in the Asia Pacific region and had invested heavily in the development of various programs and initiatives in the country.
“From the pursuit of mushroom farming to joint medical research, there is great interest in our nation as a destination for foreign investment,” he said.
He said as Fiji welcomed an expanded and dynamic range of opportunities for foreign investment, his government would work to ensure demonstrated stability, integrity, transparency and accountability in all aspects of work.
Commodore Bainimarama said it was the priority of his government to uphold high standards for all business either old or new.
“As Fiji’s economy continues to expand, reviving old industries and developing new ones, it is important to ensure these operations run with transparency, accountability and with an eye towards future developments,” he said.
