FOURTEEN agriculture and 23 carpentry students, including two trainees from Tuvalu, from the Ministry of Youth and Sports graduated from its training centre in Nasau.

Minister for Youth and Sports Laisenia Tuitubou congratulated the graduates and said they continued to provide focused and sustainable programs to train youths in organic agriculture and carpentry.

"It is once again that time of the year when we gather to celebrate the accomplishments of our organic agriculture and carpentry graduates," Mr Tuitubou said.

"The Fijian economy faces challenges due to the changing weather pattern and thus the Fijian agriculture and carpentry industries demand young and innovative minds to propel the country forward."

Mr Tuitubou said the graduates were in the perfect position to give back to and serve as leaders in their communities.
