“MPG will see to the need to find market outside through trades or export for communities that work together through program such as the Mermaid project,” Fini said.

He said with the knowledge attained from program as such Mermaid, it would be encouraging to see communities venture into small scale farming even into large scale.

Fini said through such farming activity, communities will not only provide healthy and nutritious food for consumption, but also earn money through exports.

He said it is the role of both national and provincial governments to make legislations and set in place legal processes for locals to trade internationally.

“This will ensure maximum benefit is receive by local farmers,” Fini said.
