Landowner wish on cane lands

If a landowners’ association has its way, it believes it has an idea to boost cane production in the country.

It has apparently done a survey and registered all vacant land. Many were leased before, but returned to landowners after the leases expired.

The problem is that the landowners do not have the capital to cultivate the land and replant sugarcane. The catch is that the association is looking to Government to pay the initial costs to be repaid after the cane is harvested.

The association is encouraged by the $2 million assistance offered by Government to help struggling farmers.

 

Media unity

Good to see growing professional unity amongst the journalists of Suva who actually work in the mainstream news media.

Fiji Sun managing editor training Nemani Delaibatiki was overwhelmingly elected Fijian Media Association president.

Guess what? Fiji Times and Fiji TV journalists were amongst those who strongly supported him through their presence and their votes.
