THE Ministry of Forestry has called on the public to report illegal logging activities.

Permanent secretary Pene Baleinabuli said there were businesses logging illegally and not keeping records.

He made the comments during a graduation ceremony last week where he said the forestry sector contributed only 0.6 per cent to Fiji’s overall Gross Domestic Product.

He said when compared to all other natural resource sectors in Fiji, the Ministry of Forestry contributed the least.
