SUVA, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- Vodafone Fiji launched the first fully-fledged online market place "VitiKart" on Wednesday to provide local businesses a platform to recover from COVID-19 and expand the scale, said Fiji's Minister for Trade Faiyaz Koya.

When businesses are not restricted by logistics like time and location, they have more opportunities to boost revenue, he said, adding that they are encouraging local businesses to be part of online platforms like VitiKart, which will be available for users from Wednesday.

Vodafone Acting Chief Executive Officer Ronald Prasad said this online market place is convenient for people who live in the maritime and rural regions where they can shop from the comfort of their own homes.

Prasad said its long term goal will include the micro-entrepreneurs who sell Fijian-made products to join the platform. Enditem
