Update: 12:07PM THE real estate market in Fiji has picked up momentum considering the tough environment since the global financial crisis in 2007-2008.

Naisoso Island Fiji managing director Bob Lowres said they continued to receive interest from local and overseas property investors for their land and apartments priced from $600,000.

"We all need to work together to put our best foot forward to the rest of the world. Fiji is an amazing place to live in and making sure people understand that there is far more to living here than just white sandy beaches and clear blue water is really important. It's safe, it's friendly, it's excellent value and it's only a few hours away from Australia and New Zealand," he said.

Meanwhile, Mr Lowres said the new Fiji Airways rebrand was a tremendous achievement for Fiji and Air Pacific.

"The new aircraft looks amazing and they'll be very effective in showing people that Fiji is back on the map and open for business."

He said people would respect the huge undertaking to rebrand an airline and purchase of a new fleet.
