Kavalicious Taveuni Director Ana Malumuvatu cannot wait to network and create partnerships to establish a market in Australia.
Ms Malumuvatu is one of 30 Fijian business leaders selected to be part of an investment and trade mission in Australia next week to expand their network and showcase Fijian products and services to Australian businesses.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to be selected and be part of this trade mission to Australia and I highly appreciate Investment Fiji for the opportunity,” she said.
Also, part of the delegation is Punja Sons Pte. Limited Group Exports Manager Alvin Sharma, FMF Group Export Manager Rakesh Raju, Food Processors (Fiji) Limited Sales Manager Rohit Prasad and Tropical Scent Premium Kava Director Maika Bukacadre.
In a statement, Investment Fiji Chief Executive Kamal Chetty said the week-long event would provide an opportunity for the delegation to establish deals with Australian companies to expand their businesses or their supply chain.
“Some of the delegates come from companies that are a household name in Fiji and we are confident that these private companies would be able to establish and connect with their respective business partners in Australia and exhibit their products and services,” Mr.Chetty said.
“This is a great opportunity not only for these companies to represent their business but to showcase to the potential investors and traders in Australia the possibilities that Fiji has to offer.”
Fiji’s Minister for Commerce, Trade, Tourism, and Transport Faiyaz Koya will be spearheading the mission, with the support of Investment Fiji Chair Jenny Seeto, Mr Chetty, Reserve Bank of Fiji Deputy Governor Esala Masitabua, and Fiji Revenue and Customs Services Chief Executive Mark Dixon.
The Australia mission event will take place in Sydney and Brisbane, Australia from Monday. The delegation departs Fiji this weekend.
