Agriculture Ministry Fiji determines export target

The Fijian Agriculture Ministry aims to raise the value of exports of fresh and chilled produce to half a billion dollars over the next ten years. Minister Mahendra Reddy says that the nation exported fresh and chilled produce, vegetables, and root crops worth $106 million in 2020. He adds this was slightly higher than the sugar export for the same period, which shows the viability of the sector.

The Minister is optimistic that this ten-year target will be achieved, considering the increasing number of Fijians who are engaged in the agriculture sector. “This target will only be possible if we can all rally behind this approach of agriculture and government to take advantage of our brand image in export markets of Australia and New Zealand and get the foreign currency into the country.”
