New Zealand and Fiji business ties
Fiji and New Zealand are natural partners, sharing a history of strong ties encompassing heritage, culture, sport, business and education. Fiji is New Zealand’s largest Pacific Island trading partner, and we have a mutual commitment to continuing to grow mutual business, trade and investment links, to support regional economic growth and integration.
New Zealand resumed full bilateral engagement with Fiji in 2014, after Fiji held its first democratic election following the 2006 military coup.
New Zealand companies have strong offerings in infrastructure and tourism and our premium food and beverage products are well placed for the hotel and resort market. There is also potential to partner in the development of local fresh produce supply chains through agricultural technology transfer or investment, with potential support from New Zealand’s aid programme.
Fiji and New Zealand are both part of the Pacific Agreement on Closer Economic Relations. Fiji has indicated a willingness to be a party to the PACER Plus trade and development agreement.
