Pasifika Businesses in Tokoroa and South Waikato were acknowledged at a special celebration held last week. The event was used as an opportunity for networking and for business people to offer advice and support on how to grow a business.
Hosted by the South Waikato Pacific Islands Community Services organisation, the owners of small to medium businesses were congratulated for having the vision, aspiration, courage, and faith to step out and use their skills as a platform to grow their economic wellbeing.
In attendance was a representative from the Waikato Pacific Business Network and the South Waikato District Council. In last weeks budget, $16.2 million over five years was allocated to support Pasifika businesses as a result of the impact of COVID -19.
