“Integrating these two economic activities presents opportunities for stronger collaboration around agribusiness development in niche markets in support of local agrifood sector and small-scale farmers while reducing the import bill of Pacific island economies,” Seruirata said when opening a regional agribusiness forum in Nadi yesterday.
