New era for Fiji investors

FIJI is open for business, says Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama.

Speaking at the opening of the Fiji-Australia Australia-Fiji Business Council forum at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva yesterday, Mr Bainimarama said there were great opportunities for those with the enterprise and foresight to take advantage of the new era of prosperity.

"In fact, this past Friday, for the first time in Fiji's history, Cabinet met with all of Fiji's development partners to highlight government's top priorities for the next four to five years and point out areas where partnerships would be most useful," he said.

The meeting was also attended by representatives from United Nations agencies, European Union, International Monetary Fund and the Asian Development Bank.

"So now is the time for those who have been holding back to invest in the country — to join those already riding the wave.

"Now is the time to reap the rewards of a vastly better investment climate and to take advantage of the government's generous investment incentives.

"There is so much working to our advantage. Our central position as a hub in the Pacific, a talented workforce destined to become smarter because of the government's investment in education, the reforms we have made — and will continue to make — to modernise and streamline our economy and our successful transition to genuine Parliamentary democracy."

He said the boom had already begun and encouraged investors not to miss out on those opportunities.
