Investment Fiji says their participation at the 2012 Yeosu Exposition last month has presented them with an opportunity to undertake a trade mission to Korea.
Chief executive, Ravuni Uluilakeba, said: “South Korea has grown and developed its economy in the last 50 years, which has shown remarkable development in the areas of trade, investment and modern high-tech infrastructure.
“Investment Fiji is now working the Trade Office in Seoul and the Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA) to further strengthen the trade links of Fiji and Korea.”
Investment Fiji on Thursday met with the private sector delegates who participated at the Trade and Investment Seminar held in Seoul, Korea last month.
The seminar had focused on presentations and one to one meetings with the Korean private sector, who had indicated their interest to trade with Fiji.
Mr Uluilakeba said this was an excellent opportunity to explore export benefits for Fiji and improve our trade relations with Korea through commodities such as cosmetics, furniture, processed food and fish products.
The Trade and Investment Seminar included Carpenters Fiji, Fiji Industries, FMF Foods Limited, Hangton Pacific Company Ltd, Punja & Sons Limited, Tropik Wood Industries Limited, Sea Quest (Fiji) Ltd, Dayals Sawmillers Limited and Dayals Artesian Water.
The Trade Seminar was held in conjunction with the opening of the Trade Office in Seoul, Korea and Fiji’s National Day at the 2012 Yeosu Exposition.
