Doing Business in Fiji

In 2020, Fiji celebrates their 50th year of independence as well as enters its 11th consecutive year of economic growth. This sustained development in this dynamic Pacific nation continues to offer opportunities for both investment and trade.

As the ‘Hub of the Pacific’, Fiji’s developing economy now reaches over $1 billion in two-way trade annually with New Zealand and receives over 200,000 Kiwi visitors a year.

To find out about the exciting opportunities in Fiji, join us for an informative and engaging seminar with guest speakers from:

  • Fiji Trade Commission to New Zealand

  • New Zealand Fiji Business Council

  • Fiji High Commission to New Zealand

These speakers will highlight and discuss market potential in Fiji, and point you in the right direction to get things started.

If you’re looking to learn from someone who’s been there and done it, David Skeggs, Chairman and Managing Director of Port Denarau Marina and Darrell Rajcharan, President of The Foundation for Rural Integrated Enterprises & Development (FRIEND), will be sharing their own experiences of doing business into Fiji’s dynamic economy.

Operating for over 20 years and listing on the South Pacific Stock Exchange last year, Port Denarau Marina operates a world class marina facility and as the hub of the integrated Denarau Island Resort complex, aims to be the leading marina in the Pacific.

FRIEND is a homegrown community development organisation working with communities in Fiji’s rural and under-served regions. Empowering communities through providing knowledge, skills and resources, FRIEND have a wide range of agricultural products they now export including chutney, jams, teas and spices.

This is an incredible opportunity to connect with other New Zealand businesses operating in Fiji and gain a better understanding of how you too can establish a presence in the Pacific.

Fijian themed drinks and canapes will be served after the presentations (4:30-5:30pm) where you will get the chance to network and talk one-on-one with the experts.
