Fiji increases visibility

FIJI's mission in Pretoria is set to increase Fiji's visibility in South Africa as it plans to increase outreach programs in 2013.

Fiji's High Commissioner to South Africa Beniamino Salacakau said after opening in 2011 most of the outreach programs were conducted close to Pretoria.

He said this year the high commission was planning to increase its outreach to other parts of South Africa.

"South Africa is so big with a population of more than 50 million and there is much to be explored over a vast landscape," he said in a statement.

"There are plans to extend to the coastal areas around Cape Town and Durban."

Mr Salacakau said the high commission had been getting positive responses from interested individuals inquiring about Fiji products.

In an effort to increase promotions, he said the high commission was in discussions with the South African Chamber of Commerce about using their bulletins for a spread on investment prospects and incentives in Fiji.

He said they were looking at signing the first Memorandum of Understanding on Cooperation with South Africa.
