The living room Made in fenua at To'ata just closed its doors with an influx of the last day in bright sunshine. It's Teva Rohfritsch, Minister of Economy who opened the show Thursday, April 28. Three candidates were not allowed to participate, the "Polynesian added value" of their products is not sufficiently demonstrated for products presented as "typical" are largely manufactured and processed abroad in Asia South east or America. Beyond the sales pitch, the made in fenua is nevertheless "a duty," the minister, who does not exclude to launch a debate with professionals to frame the more strictly label. "It is true that we lack raw materials, therefore, it must be imported. But what is important is to create added value in Polynesia, which is to create jobs and ensure a maximum margins can be done on the land. "Many efforts were made currently, particularly in the areas of agribusiness and forestry. "It supports the cargo of fruit coming from the Austral and Marquesas to Tahiti, for example reminds the Minister. We of course enhancement in the form of juice, but I have other projects that are under consideration at the moment. On wood, is the exploitation of our pine which now matures. An industry is to move from Tubuai and the Marquesas, so we can gain market share in the imported wood. We begin to be able to develop this type of local products. "Still other companies, especially in the textile, sometimes even earn to source 100%" made in abroad. " "We must see, on an industrial scale, how can accompany them. It's part of the discussions I wishes to have with the Union of Industrialists of French Polynesia (Sipof) says Teva Rohfritsch.

"This is all for more public money. The Minister participated in a commission on tax exemption on Wednesday. "We would now apply to importers furniture always verify that it is impossible to make these furniture locally. If that is the case, we défiscaliserons them.

"This underlines the dynamism of the creation by the Polynesians and the Polynesians, the minister said. But also for tourists, and I hope that in the future this could open up the channels for export. "According to him, jewelry and crafts, which would begin to position" on the near-luxury ", are on track.
