Fiji's Prime Minister said Fiji is looking for increased trade with and investment from China, including tapping into its tourism market, while speaking at the inauguration of the Fiji/China Business Council Thursday night.

According to Fijilive, a Suva-based news service, Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama said the Immigration Department recently relaxed VISA requirements for Chinese citizens, aimed at enticing more Chinese tourists.

"With (your) impressive economic growth records, a lot of Chinese will be looking out for opportunities for leisure and enjoyment to spend their money and wealth overseas as tourists. We in Fiji would like to have a share in your tourism market as well, " he said.

Commodore Bainimarama said the interim government is also actively pursuing enhanced level of developmental collaboration with China.

"In particular, we are working on a number of proposals to seek developmental and soft loan funding from China to assist with upgrading our rural roads and maritime transportation, provide low cost housing to squatters, improve our water supply and revitalize Fiji's agricultural sector."

Thursday night's function at the Noble House in Suva was attended by members of the Chinese and Fiji business community.

Leading members of the interim government were also present.
