Goundar Shipping continues to be grounded by MSAF and this has affected agriculture businesses in the maritime islands.

Minister for Agriculture, Rural and Maritime Development Dr.Mahendra Reddy said the ministry is aware of the challenges that farmers and businesses in the outer islands are facing because of the non-operation of Goundar Shipping vessels.

Dr.Reddy also said that they are currently monitoring the situation.

The line minister has confirmed with Fiji One that they will be meeting with MSAF this week to see if the situation pro-longs.

He said that if need be, they will find alternative ways of transportation so that farmers crops and businesses are not affected on these islands.
