A delegation from the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade visited the Ministry of Trade, Cooperatives, Small and Medium Enterprises for a meeting.

CCPIT Vice Chairman, Chen Jianan says both sides affirmed their mutual interest in exploring ways for further cooperation in promoting trade and investment relations.

The Vice Chairman says they will re-double efforts to export more premium Fijian made products and services to the Chinese market and attract more high quality Chinese investments to Fiji.

Jianan adds trade and investment has always been an important factor in the bilateral relationship between Fiji and China.

According to Chinese statistics, in 2022, the bilateral import and export trade totaled US $549 million, a 21.6% increase on year to year basis.

With the ease of the restrictions of border control measures imposed against COVID-19, Fiji's business community is expected to continue participating in the Canton Fair and the China International Import Expo, which will help business people from China and Fiji to better explore the markets and specialty products of each other.
