It creates sustainable livelihoods,  boosts growth and creates jobs through  partnerships with local business across Fiji’s tourism, horticulture and export  processing sectors. I attended an exhibition of MDF success stories and was impressed  by the business partnerships being supported by MDF, Bishop said during her recent visit to the country last week. One of these, Devesh and Bharros Farms, has aspirations to become the largest commercial seedling nursery in Fiji. By supplying seedlings and information to local farmers on key crops for tourism and export, this initiative will help boost local  production, allowing farmers to diversify into new high value crops. She further pledged continued support to the private sector to promote sustainable and inclusive economic growth through their aid program. Our continued support for private sector initiatives such as the MDF Program will help drive job creation and new opportunities in Fiji,  particularly for those in rural areas and outer islands. Immirin Cnn of Crbin Illl enris The Immigration Department is condent they have measures in place to prevent travellers coming into the country through illegal means.Director Immigration, Major Nemani Vuniwaqa says that it would be impossible for anyone to use a fake Fiji  passport when travelling.While fake Fiji passports have emerged in countries like Pakistan, the Immigration Department says our  passport books are easily identied.“We have security features in the new  books that if it is copied there can be 2 to 10 features that can be identify or cannot be copied by the company that is making fake passports.”Vuniwaqa says Fijian passports can  be detected in any boarder around the world.“We have mechanism and machine to detect if any fake passport is use not only in Fiji but all respective countries will be able to detect if there is a fake  book been use by a traveller from one country to the other.”For now they have not received any complaint from international airports.“Because all passport have its own unique security features and any traveller will not be able to use any other travel documents inother countries.”The Immigration Department is conducting checks on the prole of a company in Pakistan that is allegedly making fake Fiji passports. Mr Bsinsss In Fvr of dy Sspnsin Schm More businesses are proposing to export under the Duty Suspension scheme.The Scheme allows businesses to import  products to use for manufacturing of goods for export without paying duty.This comes as businesses met to discuss the scheme facilitated by the Fiji Exports Council around the country.However only 48 enjoy exporting under the Duty Suspension scheme.This is now being reviewed to include more businesses.An International Monetary Fund trade consultant says this also plays an important  part in addressing our trade decit.“I think there’s a great potential for  businesses but I think there’s great  potential to use the free trade agreements in the region to expand exports, to increase manufacturing processing in Fiji and we would like to provide a scheme that will help manufacturers and exporters to do just that,” said IMF Trade Policy consultant, Douglas Cruickshank.“Hopefully we can attract with the scheme more investment to do manufacturing and processing in Fiji and that we can also help these companies nd their market.”So far recent consultations held in other  parts of the country have seen businesses wanting to include other products for import to add value to their exports.“The feedback to include raw materials and machines spare parts, consumables and tools as most of them have manufacturing plants,” said Fiji Exports Council CEO, Jone Cavubati.The nalized report on the submission will be made at the end of this month.“We’ve put a position that will be through FRCA and through the Ministry of Finance and hopefully government can accept our recommendations,” Cavubati said.The review is supported by the Australian Aid’s program “Market Development Facilifty” which helps in the development of the private sector.More than 2000 businesses in Fiji export their products overseas.

Abu Dhabi-based airline Etihad has a cornerstone stake in Air Berlin, as well as Virgin Australia and a number of other airlines around the globe.Mr Pichler's departure comes just over a year after he began at Fiji Airways.The Fijian government owns 51 per cent of the airline, while Qantas has 46  per cent. The relationship between the two major shareholders has been strained in recent years. In 2012, Qantas removed its four representatives from the airline's board in response to the Fiji government making clear its intention to take absolute control .The airline formerly known as Air Pacic has attempted to reshape itself as part of efforts to stem losses and  better portray itself as the country's national ag carrier. As part of those efforts, Fiji Airways has taken delivery of new Airbus A330s and retired gas-guzzling Boeing 747 jumbos.The airline plans to boost its aircraft eet by a quarter by 2017 with the  purchase or lease of four new aircraft including a twin-aisle A330 and two Boeing 737s.The extra planes will help it to boost the number of passengers it can carry  by 39 per cent on routes within the Asia-Pacic over the next ve years. Air New Zealand also has a small shareholding in Fiji's national airline. Fiji Airways chairman Nalin Patel said the board would immediately begin a search for a new chief executive. Goodbye Fiji, hello Germany: Stefan Pichler is stepping down as Fiji Airways CEO after just over a year. Laser WhiteningDental ImplantsI.V.
