While opening the Forestry Stakeholders consultation in Labasa today, Mr Naiqamu said the industry had contributed an average of $36million every year towards the country’s Gross Domestic Product.
“This consultation is to discuss how the Government can work with you to build a robust and thriving forestry sector and to grow our economy,” Mr Naiqamu said.
