IPEF is a US – Led initiative launched in Tokyo, Japan in May 2022, with 13 participating countries that represent 40 per cent of the world GDP.

Fiji is the first Pacific Island nation, and the 14th country to join the IPEF.

The four priority pillars for IPEF include trade, supply chains, clean economy, and fair economy, which include tax and anti-corruption.
