A High level government delegation is in Malaysia to enable the tour party to adopt ways to improve Fiji's agricultural sector.

The 10-member team led by the permanent secretary for Rural and Maritime Development and National Disaster Management Filipe Alifereti, also includes all commissioners of the four divisions — Joeli Cawaki, Ilaitia Tuitubou, Alipate Bolalevu and Netani Rika, permanent secretary for Fisheries and Forests Inoke Wainiqolo, deputy secretary for Agriculture Uraia Waibuta and principal fisheries officers George Madden and Shalendra Singh.

"The visit will enable us to learn from one of the advanced developing countries in the world, Malaysia," Mr Alifereti said.

He said the tour was a good opportunity for the country to consider some agriculture policies of Malaysia, especially in the areas of fisheries, forestry and agirculture.
