NZ TRADE BODY HERE TO BOOST FIJI’S PO­TEN­TIAL EX­PORTS

Fiji Sun - - 2016-17 National Budget -

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.
