Tuvalu - Rotuma Trade

Date: May 23, 2008

Fijian Interim Trade Minister Tom Ricketts has indicated that better times and opportunities lie ahead for the island of Rotuma.

He said with the declaration of Rotuma as a port of entry recently trade between Rotuma and the neighbouring island of Tuvalu will be a prominent feature.

"I see great potential for Rotuma because not only will they send their fruits to Tuvalu, they will also be able to send their fruits to the main island of Viti Levu," Mr Ricketts said.

"Rotuma's had a problem with exporting fruits from the island and theres a unit thats been set up to test these fruits for fruit flies."
