Pasifika Business Market adds new vibe at Pasifika Festival

Pacific Trade Invest New Zealand is hosting its first stand-alone pan-Pasifika Business Market place. Adding a new hub with more than 35 small to medium businesses directly from 11 Pacific Island countries to the Pasifika Festival’s Village layout.

The new Pasifika Business Market is beside the Samoa Village in front of Western Springs Stadium. It’s been a three-year progression for PTI NZ sparking new life into the Pasifika Festival, one of New Zealand’s largest cultural festivals.

It’s an exciting new development for PTI NZ which has hosted delegations from the Pacific’s small to medium businesses at Pasifika Festival in the past two years.

PTI NZ is working in association with Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) to create the hub for Auckland’s annual festival on 24-25 March 2018.

“We are absolutely delighted that the management and control of Pasifika has been taken back by ATEED,” PTI NZ Trade Commissioner Michael Greenslade said.
