The Island of Rotuma has started its trade with Tuvalu with the sale of Dalo at $2.00 a kilo.

This was revealed by Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama while speaking at Nakalawaca Village in Tailevu.

Bainimarama says they are also working on upgrading the jetty on Rabi Island to allow people there and those in Taveuni to support Rotuma and Kiribati with the trade.

He says government is now working on increasing the price of dalo in the country.

Bainimarama says dalo today is being sold at 60 cents a kilo which is a big loss to farmers.

He says they are working to increase the price of dalo, to be between $1.20 to $1.80.
