PIC will organise the delegation consisting of leading Japanese companies with expectations for further building business networks between Japan and Fiji. The counterpart on the Fijian side, Investment Fiji, and PIC are working closely toward making the business matching initiative a success with promising outcomes.
“Both Governments of Japan and Fiji have high expectations of the project. We will therefore definitely make this come out well,” PIC Director Kazuyoshi Ogawa said.
Speaking of the high interest that the forthcoming delegation had generated in the Japanese private sector, Reiko Takada, Promotions Coordinator, who is in charge of the project said, “No sooner had we released the news than we received several enquiries by Japanese companies, which shows their high interest in participating in the delegation. We believe the importance of this project is sure to appeal to the Japanese private sector and concerned agencies.”
