Acting Prime Minister and Minister for Trade Manoa Kamikamica

The Acting Prime Minister and Minister for Trade, Manoa Kamikamica says the Government recognizes that investment is critical for job creation, boosting productivity and improving social and economic well-being and they are committed to ensuring investment policies and regulations are transparent, predictable and supportive of sustainable development.

This was highlighted during the first meeting of the Investment Facilitation Committee.

Kamikamica says Investment Facilitation Committee will serve as a high-level dedicated platform to address the regulatory administrative bottleneck faced by investors.

He says the establishment of Investment Facilitation Committee is a clear indication of the Government's commitment to creating a conducive environment for investments in Fiji as they recognize the importance of investments.

He adds investments can be complex and involve various stakeholders in Fiji, therefore, the Committee's role will be to ensure that investors have a smooth experience when investing in Fiji and make Fiji an attractive investment destination for local and foreign investors.

Kamikamica says he believes that special attention and facilitation should be given to investment projects that can generate positive social and economic outcomes, such as job creation, environmental sustainability, and technological innovation.
