Fiji’s interim regime is hoping to revamp the country’s coconut industry through a series of measures aimed at boosting growth.

Speaking at the 49th Asia Pacific Coconut Community conference being held in Nadi this week, the interim Prime Minister, Commodore Frank Bainimarama, said the industry needed to be supported with modern technology.

According to FBC News, Commodore Bainimarama announced measures including opening a new coconut facility on the island of Taveuni and educating people about the different types of coconut products.

A new scheme was also launched to plant a million coconut trees by 2016.

The industry has been declining in recent years with smaller yields and low prices.
