He’s assured them of the government’s commitment to reviving the industry in the aftermath of TC Winston.

Apart from government’s assistances to the farmers, the anticipated arrival of new FSC Chairman Vishnu Mohan should spur renewed energy in the way forward for the Industry.

Bainimarama and his team of government officials will be touring cane farming communities around the western division this weekend and the coming week to consult and get feedback from farmers on the way forward.
