The two new board directors are former Chief Executive of the Fiji Development Bank, Tukana Bovoro, and Fiji Country Coordinator for the Market Development Facility (MDF), Malcolm Bossley.

Mr Cole said the appointment of the two directors would prove beneficial for the Fiji Crop and Livestock Council Board of Directors.

COLE: “The Council is pleased to have Mr Bovoro and Mr Bossley on board. With the current composition of the Board and the inclusion of the two new members, will undoubtedly strengthen the Council.We have now formalized 11 crop and livestock associations under the Council, and by creating national bodies enables member farmers to speak with one voice.

Both Mr Bovoro and Mr Bossley possess extensive expertise in the field of finance and grassroots development.

Mr Bovoro has been managing his own consultancy firm since 2014. Having worked in the Pacific region he was instrumental in developing the Joint Liability Loans programme in 2011 in Vanuatu. The scheme enables rural dwellers to access funds that they would, under normal circumstance, be unable to access.

Mr Bossley has over 12 years of development experience in Fiji, having worked for the United Nations Development Programme, International Labour Organization, and the Australian Aid Programme. His current role with the MDF lies in stimulating pro-poor growth in the horticulture, tourism, and export processing sectors of the economy.
