Investment Fiji recently launched an Exporter Guide which gives Fijian businesses access to the latest information on exporting regulations and requirements. The Guide serves as a reference tool for exporters looking for information on certification and testing of products, incentives, logistics services, current trade agreements, licensing, export insurance and financing.
The new online resource which will be available on Investment Fiji’s website, has been developed with the support of Australia’s Market Development Facility (MDF). The Chief Executive Officer of Investment Fiji, Craig Strong stated exporters will have access to accurate and updated information and proud to have the development of the Exporter Guide through the Market Development Facility.
The launch of the Exporter Guide was officiated by the Australian High Commission’s Counsellor for Development Cooperation, Ms Joanna Houghton, who stated COVID-19 has impacted global trade, and the Australian Government is keen to support economic recovery initiatives in Fiji.
The Exporter Guide can be accessed via https://feg.investmentfiji.org.fj/.
Investment Fiji and Australia’s Market Development Facility (MDF) also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) designed to promote trade and investment. A number of partnership opportunities has been identified, key of which is Investment Fiji’s transition to the new Investment Promotion Agency. The new MoU provides the framework to support trade and investment in emerging economic sectors such as Outsourcing Services, niche tourism and high value agriculture.
