PNG trade issues are under control: Koya

PNG trade issues are under control: Koya Fiji’s Trade Minister Faiyaz Koya says trade issues with Papua New Guinea are under control and has welcomed the commitment of his Papua New Guinea counterpart, Richard Maru to resolve the current trade impasse between the two countries.

In a letter on 5 September 2016, Minister Maru acknowledged the commitment by Fiji to do the same and assured Minister Koya that his technical team will cooperate with their Fijian counterparts to resolve any outstanding issues.

“Minister Maru has positively responded to my letter to undertake a technical assessment and discuss the issues being raised by PNG. And PNG has assured me of the highest level of cooperation with Fijian authorities so that the issue can be resolved amicably,” Minister Koya said.

He said Fiji values its relations with PNG and all its trading partners and takes a measured and concerted approach to swiftly address any issues, impediments or misunderstandings that may arise.

This he said is done through proper and official channels.

Minister Koya also stated that he is seriously concerned that certain Opposition members are making statements to the media without verifying the facts and the steps being taken by the Fijian Government to allay the situation and to ensure that the bilateral trade between Fiji and PNG flows without any impediment and with the relevant biosecurity concerns addressed. 

“These statements are in no way helping the efforts of both the countries to resolve the matter and are spreading misinformation in the business community. Had they checked with the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism, they would have been given the facts. I therefore urge people who are interested in this issue to please contact the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism and to refrain from making incorrect and uninformed statements,” he added.
