Fiji's exporters say Australia's biosecurity changes 'overdue'

From , 6:04 am on 28 September 2016

Fijian exporters say they are looking forward to see the promises of better biosecurity arrangements with Australia, as new entrepreneurs enter the export market.

At a recent business event in Fiji, Australian authorities were quizzed over long-term delays in clearing containers at Australian ports.

A new container cleaning deal with Fiji could lead to more efficient clearance times - something exporters say is well overdue.
