Niue Pharma PLUS

Agribusinesses in Niue can look forward to new growth opportunities as a new partnership has emerged between the country’s Chamber of Commerce and the PHAMA Plus Program.

It will enable grant support to three local women-led enterprises that are part of the Academy of Women Entrepreneurs (AWE), a cohort of entrepreneurial women under the Chamber.

The grants aim to assist with business development and technical expertise for domestic and international trade.

President of the Niue Chamber of Commerce, Sefeti Fatiaki Adriana said: “This is the first step in growing what will be a vital partnership to progress and strengthen businesses in Niue, especially those in the export sector.”

CEO of the Chamber of Commerce Catherine Etuata Papani says she is excited that PHAMA Plus will also provide support towards upgrading data collection and analytical capacity.

“Women are predominantly engaged in smaller businesses such as handicrafts, food processing and hospitality in Niue. Under our collaboration with the Niue Chamber of Commerce, we hope that more women entrepreneurs harness opportunities that will contribute towards an equitable and inclusive economic growth and recovery post COVID-19,” PHAMA Plus Program Manager Small Islands States, Sangita Kumar said.
