Biosecurity Authority of Fiji (BAF) chief executive officer, Hillary Kumwenda, confirmed this during the Fiji BAF-NZMPI (New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industries) Bilateral Quarantine Agreement (BQA) meeting earlier this morning at the Tanoa Hotel in Suva.

The fruit was slapped with a temporary suspension earlier this year after the NZ Ministry for Primary Industries intercepted eggs, live larvae and adult insects in a consignment of heat-treated fruit from Fiji.

This also comes as good news to about 150 farmers and seven exporters who were affected by the ban on eggplant exports to New Zealand.

NZ MPI chief technical officer Dr Stephen Butcher, who led the delegation to the bilateral meeting, said trade would now resume as normal after the lifting of the ban.
