Fiji Businessmen briefed on Investment Opportunities in New Caledonia
H.E Ambassador Gilles Montagnier attended the Trade and Investment Mission to New Caledonia Awareness Briefing yesterday.
In his introductory remarks Ambassador Montagnier stated:
“I am convinced that Fiji is the natural partner of New Caledonia in the region, particularly on the economic front: your country is the hub of the South Pacific, its economy is diversified - and your presence here is evidence of this- and there are many other similarities.”
The briefing which was organised by Fiji’s Ministry of Industry and Trade, included a presentation by Alain Chung Wee of New Caledonian based Investment Promotion Agency ADECAL.
His talk provided information on the New Caledonian market, biosecurity requirements, the tariff structure, import ban products list and investment opportunities.
In attendance were members of the Fiji Government, the Embassy of France, the business community and the media.
