NZ TRADE BODY HERE TO BOOST FIJI’S POTENTIAL EXPORTS
A three-member team from Pacific Islands Trade & Invest (PT&I) New Zealand and a seasoned trade consultant will accompany nearly two dozen New Zealand businesspeople to Fiji next week. This is part of a business mission to build on growing trade and investment between the two countries. One of the largest ever business missions from New Zealand, the delegation includes a cross-section of SMEs to some of New Zealand’s largest public listed companies. It will travel to Fiji between June 27 and July 1. It comes just weeks after the New Zealand Prime Minister John Key visited Suva- a first for Kiwi leader to visit here after nearly a decade. The PT&I NZ team, led by trade commissioner Michael Greenslade, is hosting two workshops of the PT&I Path to Market (P2M) Programme in Nadi and Suva. P2M is an export capability building programme that combines the range of export facilitation services and expertise provided by PT&I to help export ready and export capable businesses enter new export markets. More than 60 countries have registered to attend the workshops.
