Sugar support

The sugarcane industry's plans to revitalise cane farming will hinge on the assistance that will be offered by the European Union, says Fiji Sugar Corporation executive chairman Abdul Khan. The EU announced earlier this month its commitment of more than $47million over four years to aid the agriculture and sugarcane industry's post Severe Tropical Cyclone Winston recovery efforts. However, what was not revealed was how the funds would be released, a timeframe for aid delivery and how much each sector would receive. "We are still talking to the EU and obviously they have said they will help agriculture and sugar," said Mr Khan. "We have put in some suggestions through the EU's co-ordination unit as to what areas are the most pertinent. However, we are at their mercy in terms of timeline for delivery." Mr Khan added that while cane rehabilitation was a priority in the wake of Winston and Zena and the recent flooding, there were two key areas that the FSC wanted to focus on in the long term.
