Fiji New Zealand Business Council

The Fiji New Zealand Business Council was set up in 1987 to maintain, support, promote and encourage trade, investment, technical and economic cooperation and tourism between Fiji and New Zealand.

The Council, through its Secretariat, provides a network and forums for its members to meet and discuss common or specific issues to do with their business enterprises in Fiji and generally exports to New Zealand, in a convivial and friendly atmosphere.

As well as, receiving any existing or potential New Zealand investors or members from our counterpart, the New Zealand Fiji Business Council, and generally supporting any such business endeavours in Fiji, whether in tourism, importing goods and services, or otherwise.

Lastly, the Council is a key lobbyist, on trade related issues, to the Fiji and New Zealand Governments, indirectly through our foundation members Investment Fiji and the New Zealand Trade Commissioner for Fiji.

The Council members consist of established manufacturers, exporters, service providers, bankers and business professionals. New Zealand is one of Fiji’s traditional trading partners, with both countries exporting to, and importing from each other. Fiji remains keen to increase its export capacity to New Zealand and substitute agricultural imports from New Zealand with local grown and supplied items.

The overall aim of the Fiji New Zealand Business Council, therefore, is to improve the performance of Fiji’s private sector, and principally to identify and improve exports to New Zealand in terms of quantity, quality and value.
