Chinese investors will soon set up food processing, housing, power generation and textile businesses in Fiji.

Fiji’s Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama said this at the granting of a lease to an Australian mining company in Suva this week.

Bainimarama said a number of Fiji’s strongest partners are based in the Asia-Pacific region.

“I have recently returned from a trip to China where great interest in Fiji was shown by potential investors,” he said.

He said this was evident from the pursuit of mushroom farming to joint medical research.
