Recognition for women

Salaseini Moceiwai

WOMEN'S contribution in the Ministry of Agriculture's operations up North is making headways, says principal agriculture officer Northern John Cox.

Commenting on the issuance of awards to four female agricultural officers at the Ministry of Fisheries, Forests and Agriculture's awards ceremony in Labasa on Friday, Mr Cox said women were now becoming a competition to their male colleagues.

"I often say that agriculture is the backbone of any country but the backbone of agriculture is women," Mr Cox said.

"The statement is true in every sense because women play a pivotal role in our society.

"They ensure that the welfare of any family is maintained.

"In some communities, men can't do a female's job but women can do both.

"In our ministry, women are dominating in terms of delivering our services and this is evident through the reward they have received today."
