[Fiji] Landowners Unlock Potential in Development Minerals
Representatives of community resource owners from the Central and Western Division of Fiji are currently gathered in Nadi for a five-day, training of the trainers (ToT) workshop on enterprise skills, market analysis, investment promotion and value addition in the Development Minerals sector.

In comparison to the metals sector, Development Minerals have closer links with the local economy, and have the potential to generate more local jobs, with a greater impact on poverty reduction.

This is partly because the sector is dominated by small and medium scale domestic businesses.

Speaking at the opening of the training, the Assistant Minister for Rural and Maritime Development and National Disaster Management and the Standing Committee Chair on Natural Resources, Hon. Joeli Cawaki, spoke of the importance of development minerals.
