Kiribati to start farming its land in Fiji

It was reported by Fiji Times that President Taneti Mamau visited the village of Naviavia, which is next to the purchased land, to reassure it that development of the land would be mutually beneficial.

Mr Mamau said yaqona or kava and vegetables were the major commercial crops he envisioned being grown on the land.

He reassured the Naviavia villagers that there would be no drastic measures taken over ownership of the land but said he hoped that they could be good neighbours looking out for each other’s needs.
