THE new Future Forests Fiji Limited Sawmill is expected to provide more employment opportunities for the people of the Ra Province.

Mill manager Emosi Cagi said the new mill started full operation in January and employed 12 people.

"This mill started its full operation in January after we registered with the Department of Forestry," Mr Cagi said.

"We buy pines from respective landowners and we do all the logging procedures here.

"Our main timber buyer at the moment is RC Manubhai & Co Ltd and if there are some other companies which may need us, we can then supply to them also. This sawmill was established in September last year but we began the actual work after registering."

Mr Cagi said youth from nearby villages like Nanukuloa, Naiserelagi and other nearby settlements should look forward to more job opportunities the company would provide in the near future.

He added the employment door was also open to those graduating from various institutes who might be looking for employment.

"There are bigger plans in the pipeline for the mill and we look forward to employing more people once business rolls in this new mill."
