Mr Jamnadas said that a multisectoral support and collaboration is needed at all levels to win the battle against COVID-19.

He added that the ROC Market which is a community-based marketing platform aspires to promote Fijian-Made products, crafted items and food.

“We remain focused on helping as many people as we can to generate local income streams, further creating support for the local circular economy.

“ROC Market is Fiji’s longest running street market – a feat we are all super proud of. Ms Ellana Bickerdike does a great job running and managing this community based market which, helps to support the vendors and their family,” Mr Jamnadas said.

Minister for Health and Medical Services Dr. Ifereimi Waqainabete has thanked Mr Jamnadas and his team for their generosity and timely assistance.
