The Fiji Fist Propaganda machine has just broadcast via Radio Regime the news that the regime is helping rice farmers grow rice and this is replacing imports. They’re talking up the ‘Star’ variety of rice to farmers because of its “high yield and short term maturation period”. So, with all this help, how does the regime explain that in 2007 we managed to produce nearly 15,000 tonnes of rice and now it is less than 8000 tonnes. That’s almost half the amount. It sounds just like sugar. Get some help from Bainimarama and he can halve your production. Why doesn’t he use the money to pay some rice experts instead of wasting money on Qorvis propaganda experts.
