China will continue to assist in the development of Fiji’s agricultural sector.

This was reaffirmed by the People’s Republic of China’s Chargé d’affaires, Wang Xuguang, as he recently met with the Minister for Agriculture and Waterways, Vatimi Rayalu.

China is currently assisting in two major projects, which include the rice planting for self-sufficiency in Vanua Levu and the Juncao technology demonstration center in Nadi.
