The Government of Fiji through the Economics and Trade Division is in the process of developing a comprehensive Trade Policy Framework, to guide Fiji’s trade and economic policies and to help achieve its national objectives; including meeting it’s Millennium Development Goals (MDG). The Trade Policy Framework will identify Fiji’s trade and economic interests in goods and services in international markets, its objectives and strategies to be pursued over time as part of its overall sustainable economic development programme.It is also expected that the Trade Policy Framework will provide guidance for enhanced and mutually beneficial interactions with all trading partners, whether undertaken bilaterally, regionally or multilaterally. Fiji currently has a number of national documents and strategic plans to guide trade and economic developments. However, weaknesses has manifested through lack of coordination, sporadic planning, duplication and overlap. The Trade Policy Framework, therefore, will provide workable strategies for trade-related engagements, including in the negotiation, implementation and exploitation of various trade agreements that needs to be developed.
