The Pacific Islands Trade & Invest is conducting a survey to capture the opinions of exporters and the challenges faced in the sector.

The first-ever Pacific Export Survey will be carried out in collaboration with the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

In a statement, the organisation said the survey was aimed at getting the opinions of exporters regarding business confidence, investment climate and export trends. Pacific Islands Trade and Invest Australian-based trade commissioner Caleb Jarvis said the survey would also examine the future outlook and highlight changes in overseas demand.

"The region is characterised by a lack of private sector data, and while there is much talk of private sector development, few studies have gone direct to the exporters of goods and services to ask for their views," he said.

The survey can be accessed online at and would be open for three weeks.
