Fiji and New Zealand are natural partners, sharing a history of strong ties encompassing heritage, culture, sport, business, and education. This reflects a common Pacific identity and strong people-to-people links.
New Zealand resumed full bilateral engagement with Fiji in 2014, after Fiji held its first democratic election following the 2006 military coup. The relationship continues to grow steadily in terms of two-way trade, tourism, defence and development cooperation.
Fiji‘s economy is one of the most developed in the Pacific, based on a thriving tourism industry, manufacturing, and its natural resources, including fisheries, forests and minerals. It has experienced eight years of successive GDP growth, a trend that is forecast to continue.
New Zealand has strong economic links with Fiji. We aspire to grow and deepen our economic integration and promote shared prosperity, security, and well-being for our countries.
