From , 5:03 am on 11 December 2018

While efforts to revitalise coconut farming in the Pacific have been welcomed, an industry official says a lot more work needs to be done to harness the economic potential of the crop.

Karen Mapusua, head of the Pacific Community's coconut development programme in Suva, says the industry needs to diversify by using other parts of the coconut.

Ms Mapusua says it will take great commitment by everyone in the coconut industry to move it forward.
