Forest work progresses

THE rainy weather experienced over the past months has not affected the extraction of pine glue in the North.

Employees of Callison Pine Pacific Chemicals Limited have continued to do their work unhindered.

Company CEO Semi Lotawa said the contribution of pine resin from the Seaqaqa and Bua stations was normal.

"The bad weather didn't affect our operations as we continue to receive the expected tonnage of resin from the North," he said.

"Operations continue to be normal and we are working towards our target.

"We aim to produce about 7000 tonnes of resin for our overseas markets this year."

Mr Lotawa earlier said they planned to increase their exports and create employment opportunities. The company has so far employed about 600 people.

The American-based company made $500,000 in revenue for the country following the production of 800 tonnes of pine resin last year.
