New Fiji Crop and Livestock Council (FCLC) trustees have been elected for the next five-year term of office.

The newly-appointed trustees are John Deo – Fiji Coconut Farmers Association, Josua Raitilava – Fiji Ginger Farmers Association, Filimoni Kilawekana – Fiji Dalo Farmers Association, and Simon Cole, Fiji Pig Farmers Association.

The new trustees were elected during the first Council Meeting for the 2020-2021 financial year held this month.

As trustees, they will appoint two or three more Councilors to form the next FCLC Board of Management.

FCLC chief executive Jiu Daunivalu said she looked forward to receiving the benefit of the trustees’ farming expertise and experience.

“I am sure the contributions made by the new trustees will be invaluable,” she said.
