TCF to Attend AISF in 2012

We’re planning on seeing all our old friends and looking to make new ones this November at the upcoming Australian International Sourcing Fair (AISF) from 20-22 November at the Sydney Exhibition Centre.

At the show, we’ll be sure to provide even greater insight as to exactly why you need to consider to ‘Make it in Fiji’ when seeking a quality manufacturer with responsive and cost effective efficiencies. With our ability to deliver timely, precise, flexible and smaller runs at truly impressive costs structures, we know that you will want to learn more about what Fiji has to offer. We hope to see you there.

TCF Industry Innovation Council of Australia Offers Valuable Insight

Australia has a TCF Industry Innovation Council and the group has produced a number of very interesting reads including its Strategic Roadmap from 2009 – 2014, the Government Program Guide and the Quality Mark, Research and Education Focus at TCF Industries Innovation Council. There’s always plenty to learn and share with our bigger brothers and these well written documents serve to provide education and inspiration for our own efforts from our close neighbors. Cheers Mates!

An Oldie but Real Goodie

This article ‘COVER STORY: RAG’S RE-INVENTION- Garment Industry Here to Stay’ dates back more than a year to late 2010 when Fiji’s TCF industry was just coming out of the 3 year AusAID program and was about to hit the ground running. The ensuing success from the first AISF show was truly unprecedented. While expectations were obviously high and spirits were perhaps even higher going in, the overwhelming and resounding response from the show created an even more unified platform for our group to build from.

The piece is an impressive detailing and compilation of TCF’s history along with highlights of an interview of TCF Council President Kalpesh by Island Business Magazine’s renowned reporter Dionisia Tabureguci. It takes the reader through the early stages of the industry through to its meteoric rise in the 1980′s and peak in 2000 on through to the rapid decline of the early 2000′s and right on up to present day stabilisation with encouraging new growth spurts.

Do take the time to read it… it’s truly a fascinating look into an industry’s exciting history. Here’s a couple of highlights contained in the article:

On the History

“At its peak in 2000, some 150 garment factories were in operation, employing up to 20,000 people and exporting close to F$350 million worth of products to Australia, New Zealand, the United States and Europe. By then, garment had displaced sugar as Fiji’s main export commodity and had also matched the tourism industry in terms of the number of people it employed. It was, however, a shaky rise to stardom.”

On the AISF Trade Show in Australia

“It was an eye-opener for us and I think all companies that went are now getting enquiries and some are in the process of negotiations with prospective clients,” said Kamlesh Naidu, General Manager of Jack’s Garmets Ltd.”

On the opportunity ahead

“Fiji’s garment manufacturers, on the other hand, have had a long history of relationships with Australian buyers and are able to supply quality niche garments, on time and at a stable price. In fact, according to a key industry player, China’s booming home market is resulting in delayed shipments and reduced quantities into Australia from China, resulting in Australian buyers turning to Fiji where the quality is better and orders can be supplied in a timely manner.”

Enjoy the read and look forward to the exciting next chapter ahead.
