Fiji’s interim foreign minister, Ratu Inoke Kubuabola, has met a six-member delegation from China reportedly interested in opening a cement factory in Fiji.

The Fijivillage website reports the group from the Northern Heavy Industries Group Company Limited is on a fact-finding mission to assess the scope and detailed design of a proposed cement factory in Sigatoka.

Ratu Inoke says Fiji is the hub of the Pacific and their business can easily expand both in the domestic and regional markets given the current boom in the respective construction industries in most countries in the region.
