We have some exciting news to share with you. A few weeks ago we were awarded the Fiji 2011 Small Exporter of the Year.
Sanjay and Jocelyn Singh (2nd and 3rd from left) of Standss receive the Small Exporter of the Year 2011 award from the Prime Minister of Fiji (4th from left). Also in the picture are Adrian Sofield Chairman-Investment Fiji, Tom Ricketts Chairman-Telecom Fiji, Michael Swan General Manager-Polynesian Shipping Line)
As many of you are aware, Standss (and Addins4Outlook and Outlook4Lawyers) is based in Fiji.
We sometimes get asked where Fiji is so here is a quick introduction to Fiji. Fiji is a group of around 300 islands in the South Pacific Ocean. Our country is famous around the world as a holiday destination. We have fantastic weather and the world’s best beaches… In short Fiji is a tropical paradise.
Some of you may also know us from our country’s more famous products… Pure Fiji and Fiji Water (and now Standss and Addins4Outlook 🙂 ).
Back to our story…
On November 26th, the 2011 Exporter of the Year Awards were held at Sofitel Resort in Denarua, Nadi.
The Prime Minister’s Exporter of the Year Awards is a prominent event that recognizes and honours exporters who have achieved sustainable export growth through innovation and commitment. The event rewards and profiles the “best of the best” businesses in exporting around the globe.
|We’re very excited to announce that our small team entered and won the Small Exporter of the Year Award for 2011.
While this is an achievement for our company, I hope that it also inspires other small companies based here in Fiji to use the Internet to reach out to and serve customers all over the world.
Our country also has an excellent education system that produces the highest quality people who can work in any sector in any country in the world. Unfortunately we lose many of our bright people to other countries due to migration.
I hope that our success will encourage more people to stay back in Fiji to help build our own country.
I personally would like to thank my family and my team (past and present) for helping me start and build a company that now serves thousands of people all over the world.
The whole team at Standss would also like to say a special thank you to our partners, customers and readers. Thank you for supporting us… for using our products and for your many ideas that have helped us create even better products.
You have made 2011 very special for us and we look forward to serving you even better in 2012.
