Insights into trade and investment between Japan and Fiji have been exchanged recently by Investment and Trade Manager of Investment Fiji Kamal Chetty and Ikue Toshinaga from United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).
The visit to the Pacific Islands Centre (PIC) office, saw the pair highlighting the opportunities available in both countries, and how investing in either would be beneficial.
Kamal appealed Fiji’s current strong economic growth, by referring to steady trade relations between Japan and Fiji.
This relationship has undergone an almost constant rising trend.
The PIC notes many Japanese companies, especially those involved with greenhouse hydroponics and energy field companies utilising solar and wind power plants, have much interest in business development in Fiji.
With growth and opportunities both increasing in the two countries, Investment Fiji has agreed to cooperate closely with Japanese companies, and to utilise its growing network.
Next year is the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between Japan and Fiji.
Both Investment Fiji and PIC have agreed to continue strengthening mutual relations, encouraging greater friendship and further development of both countries.
