The CEO of The Pacific Business Hub, Laura Keil-Hall today made an address on Facebook about the launch of its new platform called The Pacific Business Journal.
"It with great pleasure that I introduce this new platform. An initiative dedicated to showcasing & highlighting Pacific stories of Pacific peoples in business." The CEO writes
Laura goes on to say that to start off the journal, they will be producing articles with the businesses based and affiliated with The Pacific Business Hub.
She mentions they already have a database of businesses that they have been working with so there is already a pipeline of stories to come but at the same time they will continue to scope and build relationships with other businesses who are not yet within their reach.
"It is our hope to go around NZ first and then go global." says Laura
The writers for the newly established platform are as follows;
Tupe is currently studying International Business at the University of Auckland. Her experience and background is in policy but is also an aspiring entrepreneur.

Melania known as Mel recently became a stay at home mom. She is married with 3 beautiful children. A couple of months ago, she approached us about starting a business to pursue her passion in writing and communications. It was very timely she came to see us because we hired her on the spot to give her the opportunity to do what she is passionate about. Mel will be operating under her newly established business name 'Wulf Publishing'.
Cecilia is a full time working solo mom of one & runs a publishing business on the side called 'Seki Media'. She founded and is the former Editor in Chief of her own magazine SUGA. She will be overseeing some of the work and also be providing insights and support in publishing a magazine for The Pacific Business Journal.

Laura acknowledges the support of the U.S. Embassy, NZ. She mentions that during her visit to Fiji on one of their programmes in 2019, she got the opportunity to pitch this idea to them and was able to secure a small funding to start this initiative up.
