TEN thousand dollars was given by the China Railway First Group (Fiji) Limited to the Agriculture Ministry to help fund the Agriculture Show that will start next week.

The three-day show will allow the ministry to showcase its products and at the same time educate people about the importance of agriculture.

China Railway public relations manager Donald Singh said the money would be spent on the upcoming show.

"The company is supporting the efforts of the ministry because we have a long term partnership, we want to continue showing our support from our side to the ministry as they try to develop the ministry of agriculture in Fiji," he said.

"We hope they reach far and wide in their efforts to develop primary industries."

Ministry permanent secretary Ropate Ligairi thanked the company for its support.

"We are also thankful to China Railway team for working with us in some projects — one of them is river dredging.

"China Railway has always supported us and this confirms how truthful and honest they are in keeping their promise and making sure the work is done properly," Mr Ligairi said.
