ABOUT AUSTRALIA AND FIJI
Fiji continues to be an important business and economic partner for Australia in the Pacific Islands region. Australian investment in Fiji is almost AUD2bn, and Fiji is a significant market for Australian traded goods and services. Australian tourists comprise about 50% of Fiji’s visitor arrivals each year. This short Australia Fiji Business Update arranged by Australia Fiji Business Council will feature expert presentations on the current economic, business and investment climate in Fiji, and will provide participants with an opportunity to discuss issues and opportunities with these experts and with other participants.
The Update is open to members of the Australia Fiji Business Council and to non-members with an interest in the Australia Fiji bilateral business relationship. All attendees must register beforehand as set out below. Guest numbers may be capped due to venue capacity, so early booking is advisable to avoid disappointment.
