The Fiji government will continue to open doors and accept the responsibility of providing Fijian businesses every chance to compete by removing business impediments, says Minister for industry and trade Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

Speaking at the launching of the 2012 Vodafone and Westpac Prime Minister’s Exporter of the year awards Sayed-Khaiyum said the government will remove impediments such as inadequate infrastructure, stringent business regulations, skill shortages and market barriers.

Sayed-Khaiyum applauded Fiji exporters for the foresight and determination to venture into tough export arena despite the hardship and sufferance due to the drastic flooding early this year.

He also applauded the efforts of the organisers for another successful event this year and that the theme “Celebrating 20 Years of Global Recognition” marks the growth of the event.

He said that holding the event helps people understand that those products exported create more awareness for Fiji.

“That product becomes the customer’s first point of contact with Fiji and the buyer’s perception of Fiji is formed through the taste, scent, and product presentation,” he said.

A total of 14 sponsors have signed to sponsor the event and exporters are encouraged to come forth and experience the volume of growth and trade in the market.
