INTERNATIONAL relations in Fiji have always been dominated by politics, says Agriculture Minister Lieutenant Colonel Inia Seruiratu.

Speaking to his staff in Labasa yesterday, Lt-Col Seruiratu said this needed to change as Fiji also needed to look for agricultural assistance from Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines and Russia.

"This involves a few different approaches and one is to source the expertise specialists of these Asian countries," he said.

"We in Fiji lack capacities in some areas, so through this partnership we are getting experts or specialists from these countries.

Lt-Col Seruiratu said Fiji could also benefit from these countries in the area of research.

"There is no need to start new researches when we can benefit from the researches that have been conducted by these countries."
