Bainimarama returns talking up China policy

Junta leader Voreqe Bainimarama is back from China saying Fiji can no longer rely on importing goods from Australia and New Zealand.

FijiVillage is quoting Bainimarama as saying it's time to also look at the Asian market.

Bainimarama met with members of the Lau Provincial Council in Deuba this afternoon.

FijiVillage quotes him as saying Fiji has to move away from relying on New Zealand and Australia because talks are underway with countries like China and India.

Reporter Vijay Narayan says Bainimarama revealed that increased trade ties are expected to result in a cement factory being set up in Fiji in the near future to help low income earners build affordable houses.

 
FijiVillage reports Bainimarama as also saying the Chinese businessmen have also shown interest in entering into the Tourism Industry and other business opportunities in Fiji.

China imports the same dairy stuff from Aus & NZ that Fiji does. So stop that and you are left with cow dung you idiot.

china trades only in massive volumes they not interested in our tiny tots volumes - get real!
when you buy stuff from china - buyers beware.
the AG needs to implement proper product labelling laws in fiji (that is harmonised to international standards) so the rubbish doesn't arrive at our doorstep and fiji can focus on producing quality products.
