SUVA, Fiji (Fiji Times, Oct. 23) - The first Fiji-Korea Business Council trade show will be a significant step in promoting trade between the two countries, says Korean Ambassador, Bong-Joo Kim.

Mr. Kim said there would be no admission fee to the two-day trade show, which begins on Wednesday.

"The objective of the trade show is not only to provide the people an opportunity to see an array of Korean merchandise ranging from automobiles, electronic goods, textile, shoes, personal accessories, tires, confectionery etc., on display but also an opportunity to purchase the items on special prices for the two days," he said.

The Korean embassy will host the event in conjunction with the Fiji-Korea Business Council at the lower auditorium of the Suva Civic Centre.

Council president Joseph Singh said the trade show was the beginning of the council's efforts to introduce South Korea's positive economic growth in Fiji.

"This is where Fiji should make use of the opportunity and learn from Korea's experiences," he said.

Singh said South Korea was once among the world's poorest agrarian societies. However, in less than four decades it had made incredible process that dramatically transformed its economy.
