“This assistance that we are giving out this morning is exactly that. We are here to fund areas where you lack so that we can take your production level to another level.”

The Minister is optimistic that this fund will have a positive impact on farmers’ capabilities, contributing to the overall growth and sustainability of the sector in Fiji.
