Fiji

Suva

Fiji, known as the 'Crossroads of the Pacific', is made up of more than 330 islands - only a third of which are inhabited. Neighbouring the Fiji Islands are New Zealand to the south, Vanuatu to the west and Tonga to the east which makes Fiji the centre of trading in the South Pacific for the South Pacific, Asia, USA and Europe. Fiji is one of the more developed Pacific Island economies with well-developed infrastructure, leading it to become a hub for regional communications and transportation. The mainstay of Fiji's economy is a thriving tourism industry, which welcomed a record 660,590 visitor arrivals in 2012 an increase of 4.5% from 2010.

Fiji has a long and positive track record in attracting investors from all over the world, many of whom have re-invested in multiple projects. Following recent political events, a return to parliamentary democracy is slated for 2014 and the government is keen to attract and retain foreign investors. The Fijian government assures local and foreign investors that Fiji remains a safe place to invest and do business.

The sugar and garment industries that once drove this island nation are making way for other economic sectors like ICT and integrated resort development. The islands have an educated workforce, access to a number of national and regional universities and excellent air access to all key tourism markets.
