THE Ministry of Fisheries has received assistance as part of efforts to improve service delivery to fishing communities around the country.

The assistance included a new four-wheel drive vehicle and office equipment including 15 computers, laptops and photocopiers.

Also part of the items given were life jackets, ice-making machines, spin dryers, sterilisers and a sports equipment.

The items, worth about $155,000, were provided by the Korean Ministry for Food, Agriculture, Fisheries and Forest last week.

Receiving the items was Minister Lieutenant Colonel Inia Seruiratu, who said the industry was appreciative of the timely handover.

"Fisheries personnel benefited through short-term fisheries technical training, mainly at Pukyong National University, Busan over the years for Human Resource Development through training opportunities," he said.
