The Australia Fiji Business Council and the Fiji Australia Business Council Fiji are pleased to host the 25th Australia Fiji Business Forum at the Marriott Hotel Brisbane on 17 and 18 October 2019. The Forum theme is “Australia and Fiji: Business Partners Across Three Centuries”. The theme reflects the historic and enduring nature of the business relationship between Australia and Fiji. You are invited to register and attend.

This year marks an important elevation in the bilateral relationship with the Prime Minister of Australia in January making the first bilateral visit ever to Fiji by an Australian Prime Minister, and the governments initiating measures to further grow the bilateral business and economic relationship.

Prime Minister of Fiji, The Hon Josaia V Bainimarama, has confirmed his attendance to make the keynote address on behalf of his government.

First held in 1987 and most years since, the Business Forum is the annual bilateral business meeting between Australian and Fijian business and government. Participants have an unparalleled opportunity to learn about business opportunities in Fiji, and to network with senior Australia and Fiji based policy makers and senior businesspeople.

The Forum provides business with information on current and prospective opportunities in Fiji as well as provide an opportunity to bring more closely together Australian and Fijian business which already have a long history of partnership and co-operation.
