By SHALVEEN CHAND

Update: 4:51PM IT is a long-term plan to ensure Fijians have enough crops and livestock to feed our population without relying on imports.

Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama when launching the agricultural policy in Suva last Friday said this was one of the biggest challenges any country will face in the 21st century and Fiji is no exception.

In a country blessed with so much fertile land, theres no reason why we cant produce the food we need as a country here at home. And theres no reason that on top of that, we cant grow food for our tourism industry and food for export as well, said Mr Bainimarama.
