West to revive farms: Maepioh



WESTERN provincial government is focused on resurrecting its six provincial farm, in an attempt to improve the province’s agriculture sector

Premier Wayne Maepioh said, “We are currently working at improving provincial farms to assist all our local farmers in the province.

“My government is also relying on national government to give us support because the provincial government is relying on the national government for funds, such as the PCDF to support other projects.”

He said according to his government’s three-year development plan 2017/2019, they plan to provide farmers and rural communities with information.

“There are significant challenge for surrounding Islands in the province especially copra farmers in Ranonga, Vella la Vella, Kolombangara and Rendova have to transport their copra products to Gizo and Noro.”
