THIS year's Trade Pasifika is expected to present much more than it did in 2012, when it was hosted at Denarau in Nadi.

This was one of the observations made by the Ambassador for Trade Pasifika, Kaliopate Tavola, who spoke at the launch of the trade show on Tuesday evening at the Vodafone Arena in Suva.

"It's going to be bigger than 2012 in many ways. We are still having the same theme as we had in 2012 — 'Exporting for Growth, It's Everyone's Business', Mr Tavola explained.

"But this time around, we're focusing on three focal sectors — agriculture, aquaculture and tourism."

He said another addition of particular importance this year was the inclusion of women and youth.

"We have created sub-themes within the main theme: women in business, very useful and youth entrepreneurship, another exciting angle to Trade Pasifika 2014.

"We've decided to do away with the seminars and just concentrate on workshops because the workshops will be geared at addressing practical issues that are very important for traders.

"And we're happy we have a resource person here from New Zealand to help in the workshops to address the problems that are related to the markets."
