Understanding and integrating technology: a case study of the Fiji sugar industry
In the global market, while sugar is produced in 110 countries, only two small Pacific Island nations, Fiji and Papua New Guinea are involved in sugar production. In Fiji, the sugar industry has an important role to play in rural development, however, the industry must adjust to changes in the international trading market. This includes the cultivars of sugarcane cultivated to increase the level of production and to implement appropriate solutions for the native land tenure system to facilitate increases in farm production. As the sugar industry in Fiji is vertically integrated, there is the need for an approach that is well coordinated to implement the new and redesigned policies.
