The Permanent Secretary to the Office of the Prime Minister, Yogesh Karan says they are looking to Japan as a potential partner to help Fiji realize the immense potential in the agricultural sector.

While handing over five tractors to the Ministry of Agriculture which will used by farmers in all divisions to assist with land preparation, Karan thanked the Japanese government for its unwavering commitment and support towards Fiji’s national prosperity, specifically through projects that have had positive impact on the livelihood of the communities in Fiji.

Karan also highlighted that the Japanese government has also given excavators and chainsaws which is being distributed to different ministries and one excavator has been given to Fiji Rice.
