Fiji to focus on production of ethanol, refined sugar and power co-generation

Fiji is interested to learn from the experience and success of the sugar industry from Mauritius, said Minister of Sugar Industry, Charan Jeath Singh to the Mauritius’ president, according to Fbcnews.

Fiji is focusing on the production of ethanol, refined sugar and power co-generation, said Singh.

Climate change, shortage of labour, lack of interest in cane cultivation among youth and ageing of cane farmers are some of the challenges Fiji’s sugar industry is facing, he said.

“Smaller developing countries like Fiji and Mauritius need to work together with other developing states to tackle carbon emission and other issues,” said the President of Mauritius.
