The Fiji Sugar Corporation lost about $5 million worth of crop during the severe flooding in the Western Division.

FSC executive chairman Abdul Khan told FijiLive this figure may be revised after further assessments.

He said they will be focusing on repairing damaged rail bridges.

Meanwhile Permanent Secretary for Sugar Lieutenant-Colonel Manasa Vaniqi said the International Sugar Organisations meeting will be held in Fiji next year.

Vaniqi said the meeting will enable the 86 member countries to see Fiji’s road map towards democracy.

He said after the meeting in New Delhi, India this month, they will be able to decide which issues they would like to raise during the ISO meeting next year.

Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama is the vice chairman of the ISO. He was elected at last year’s meeting in London.
