PACIFIC seafood chain suppliers are expected to effectively expand their networks and grow their businesses as mentors and participants of a global fisheries business competition they've been invited to participate in.

Run by the US-based Manta Consulting and backed by the US State Department, the Fish 2.0: Where Seafood Businesses and Investors Connect Competition yesterday held its second regional business development and application workshop in Nadi.

"We want to help provide businesses and entrepreneurs the tools to expand enterprises, reach new markets and find strategic partners," said US Ambassador Judith Cefkin, who opened the workshop.

"The Fish 2.0 competition aims to connect investors interested in supporting sustainable, environmentally-friendly and innovative ideas with new and growing businesses in fisheries, aquaculture and seafood supply chains."

Part of the competition requires participants to demonstrate their impact and growth potential and develop a pitch for investors and raise their business visibility, with several monetary prizes and professional service awards offered.
