Solomon Islands coffee producers, Varivao Holding Ltd is one of the forty companies within the Region currently in Fiji to promote their products and services at the annual Melanesian Spearhead Group road show.

The company's general manager, Dudley Longmei said this was the first time his company was part of the regional exhibition.

He said the trade show would also enhance trade agreements between MSG countries. "This is our first time here and we hope to promote our product and make new business deals with other corporate bodies within the region," Mr Longmei said.

The trade show is aimed at providing opportunities for businesses to showcase their products to potential buyers and investors.

Attorney-General and Minister for Trade Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said the businesses were from Fiji, PNG, Solomon Islands, New Caledonia and Vanuatu.

"This trade show is very important because it allows these businesses to showcase their opportunities and potential that exists within the MSG trade group," Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said.

"It also provides investment opportunities that we can take advantage of or be part of."
