SUVA, Fiji (April 26, 1998 - PACNEWS)---Government officials, together with business leaders, are implementing a strategic plan to ensure the longtime survival of Fiji’s textile, clothing and footwear industry.

A task force has been appointed by the two parties to proceed with the plan, Island Networks Corporation reports.

President Ratu Sir Kamisese Mara outlined details of the strategic plan when he opened the new United Apparel garment factory in Nadawa, outside Suva, last week.
