Kiribati to host 19th Regional Fisheries Forum Meeting


    Kiribati Minister for Fisheries and Marine Resource Development says mutual trust, respect, genuineness and commitment with overseas investments are contributing to the huge economic development of Kiribati in terms of employment opportunities, diversification of income generation to our local fishermen and accessing international markets.

    Ribanataake Tiwau made the statement at the official opening of Kiritimati Island Fish Limited (KIFL) new office building in Ambo Tuesday.

    Tiwau said the opening of the new building was also very timely as it will be the venue to host the 19th Regional Fisheries Forum Meeting later this month.

    The meeting will commence from 22 – 26 August and followed by the U. S Treaty negotiating meeting.
