Exporting to Fiji

Fiji is a group of islands located in the South Pacific Ocean, near Australia and New Zealand. It has a population of just under 100,000 (IMF, 2019). In the year ended June 2019, total UK exports to Fiji amounted to £26 million, an increase of 4.0% compared to the previous year (ONS, 2019).

Demand for goods

In the year to June 2019, the top goods exported from the UK to Fiji were partly finished manufactured goods, electrical goods and scientific instruments (ONS, 2019). If you are a UK business looking to export these goods, then Fiji may be a good market for you.

Demand for services

The top services imported by Fiji from the rest of the world were transport, travel, business, insurance and pension, telecommunications, computer and information services (ITC Trade Map, 2019). If you operate in any of these industries, Fiji could be a good market for you.
