Fiji's Ministry of Industry and Trade permanent secretary says Fiji is ready to showcase local-made products at the 2014 Melanesian Spearhead Group investment and trade fair in Papua New Guinea next week.

Shaheen Ali told the Fiji Times that about 25 participants from 20 Fijian companies would be showcasing their products at the trade show, adding the companies represented various sectors of the economy.

He made the comment during a briefing with the private sector in Suva.

Mr Ali said Fijian-made products were from textile, clothing and footwear, hardware, home furnishing, construction, financial services, wholesale and retail and the manufacturing sector.

The investment roadshow starts next Thursday and will end on Friday.
