(Sep 29, 2008) Fiji has introduced new regulations regarding foreign investment that place restrictions on foreign investors participating in "restricted activities" (that is, investment activities subject to conditions, should non-Fijan investors wish to pursue them). While previously foreigners wishing to invest in restricted activities were regulated by a percentage of equity, they are now required to make minimum prescribed cash injections from FJ$50,000 – FJ$5 million (about US$157,000 - US$3.1 million), depending on the business activity. All foreign investors also must apply to the Fiji Islands Trade and Investment Bureau for a Foreign Investment Registration Certificate. The new regulations entered into force on July 11, 2008.
