Minister for MALFFB, Matai Seremaiah said, “I managed to convince the Governments of Australia and New Zealand to provide financial assistance by investing in mechanisation.
“The Australian government has supported MALFFB with four tractors and New Zealand government one tractor. The tractors were allocated to the islands of Maewo, Tanna, Erromango, Efate and Epi. For the first time last year 2018, the Vanuatu government allocated budget to purchase three more tractors,” Mr Seremaiah said.
The tractors were allocated to Gaua, Santo and Malekula.
