Global outsourcer MindPearl has announced it will set a contact centre in Fiji's Kalabu tax free zone next June.

The centre will reportedly employ more than 2,500 people, with more than 5,000 jobs created in the next four to five years. MindPearl chief executive William Pattison was quoted as saying Fiji was chosen for the centre after numerous tests and the availability of a better workforce.

According to the Fiji Islands Trade and Investment Bureau, once set up, the contact centre is expected to generate more than $48 million in foreign exchange annually. Fiji's interim Commerce Minister, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said incentives announced by the Interim government will attract more investors in the country.
