August 13, 2015 6:00 am
A temporary suspension placed on produce exported from Fiji to New Zealand has been lifted.
This was announced in the last hour by the Minister for Public Enterprise Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.
Sayed-Khaiyum and other government officials met with officials from New Zealand’s Ministry of Primary Industries in Nadi yesterday to discuss the impasse.
NZ’s MPI had temporarily suspended four imported commodities from Fiji- these were breadfruits, papaya, mangoes and eggplants on August 2nd.
However, they admitted they made an error suspending the four commodities as it was inappropriate.
