INTERNATIONAL investors are spoilt for choice in the ocean of investment opportunities offered by Fiji and its neighbouring Pacific Island countries.
The Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat made the comment yesterday as it launched the 2012 online spreadsheet edition of the Investment Opportunities in the Pacific.
PIFS secretary general Tuiloma Neroni Slade said investment opportunities found in the Pacific were as diverse as the region itself.
"Spread across 14 island countries, six time zones and three sub-regions, investors are spoilt for choice," Mr Slade said.
The publication is the second edition of its kind developed by Pacific Islands Trade & Invest — an arm of the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat with presence in Auckland, Beijing, Geneva, Sydney and Tokyo.
The publication features 60 investment-ready opportunities in 14 Forum Island countries across various sectors.
According to the publication, Fiji offers 16 investment opportunities most of which are in the tourism and hospitality sectors. Mr Slade said the online database would allow Pacific businesses looking for joint venture partners, equity participation or a buyer to use the database to promote investment in their business free-of-charge.
Meanwhile, the secretariat said technology played a part in addressing the geographical isolation of the region.
