“As far as being neglected, we want to step up. We want to be present on issues that are relevant to the pine industry with the landowners, work with them to resolve it. Some of it may be historical. Some of it may be current. But we can only undertake to deal with it.”

Ratu Rakuita adds that some of the concerns arise due to misunderstanding or miscommunication, but they work closely with the Fiji Pine Trust, which is an entity representing the pine landowners.
