Reduce production cost

THERE is a need to reduce the cost of producing sugar, says an Indian expert.

Dr Sachin Chaturvedi of the Observer Research Foundation's Research and Information System for Developing Countries unit, says that if Fiji comes up with some specific demand for the sugar industry, the Indian Government would do something.

Dr Chaturvedi said India had developed some policies that had to be shared with the world.

"India's policy has been to respond to specific demands from countries," he told The Fiji Times in Delhi last week.

"Ethiopia came with a specific demand and it was met. India gave millions of dollars to Ethiopia for its sugar industry. Ethiopia was a net importer of sugar but it's a net exporter now.

"I think if Fiji comes up with some specific demand, then I think the Indian Government will do something."
