He has been Minister of Fisheries and Agriculture twice and you can now see in his role as Prime Minister that he has allocated a significant amount of funds for the growth and development of the sector. He mingled with customers tonight.

The Director of Marine Resources added: “We had a large amount of fishery products because you know that fish is one of the healthiest meats for people with noncommunicable diseases (NCDs). So we take that as a stepping stone and hope that the next time we have this event it will be bigger and better than what we see here tonight, but overall it has been a huge success. “
