Enhancing and improving productivity in the Fisheries and Forestry sector will be one of the key areas which the Ministry is adamant to improve in the next four years.

This was highlighted by the newly appointed Minister for Fisheries and Forest Osea Naiqamu at the official welcoming ceremony yesterday morning.

“With this the department of Fisheries is responsible for the formulation and implementation of policies that promote best practice (equating conservation and utilization), that will ensure a prosperous and enhanced fisheries sector,” Mr Naiqamu said.

“We need to improve coordination through consultation and partnership with resource owners, communities, private sector, government agencies, Non-Governmental Organisations, regional and international agencies,” he said.

With the future plans set to improve the two economic sectors, Minister Naiqamu is confident of ensuring that our future generation will inherit a prosperous fisheries and forestry sector.
