Pacific Trade Invest – the Trade Promotion arm of the Pacific Islands Forum - has commended the Kiribati Fish Limited (KFL) in Tarawa for its impressive performance.
Pacific Trade Commissioner Caleb Jarvis was responding to a question raised by Radio Kiribati News regarding his survey on Kiribati’s fisheries sector during a virtual conference with Pacific journalists providing online coverage of the Forum Economic Ministers Meeting (FEMM).
Jarvis said the partnership between China and the Kiribati government in the fishery sector is producing a world class product.
However, he warned COVID-19 has led to tough times for the Pacific tuna industry.
Reduced passenger flights have resulted in high freight costs and access to important markets in Asia has been reduced.
Jarvis said governments have a role in ensuring locally-owned tuna businesses are protected from raiders that might come in and lift these assets off the Pacific Islands.
Governments have to be on guard, he said, to make sure they protect the fishing sector for future generations....PACNEWS
