COVID causes delay in export of kava

COVID causes delay in export of kava The escalating cases of coronavirus in the country has set back hopes of exporting kava to Australia anytime soon.

Australia Minister for International Development Zed Seselja said the government had wanted to start importing kava by the end of last year but coronavirus have held that back.

Seselja said the Australian government have held a forum with private organisations and civil societies recently on steps that can be taken to start the importing of kava in the region.

“We have had made a commitment to kava pilot and it is quite important to us.  We know that it is also important to our Pacific neighbours,” he said.

“I in fact attended a kava forum in Canberra a few weeks ago with some of our Pacific community and Heads of Missions from our Pacific neighbours.

“So, what we've done, there are two aspects to the kava approach. One was to increase the amounts that individuals could bring into the country, to be doubled the amount.

“Obviously with the restricted ability to move across international borders at the moment, that obviously hasn’t sort of been able to facilitate much kava flow.

“In terms of the commercial importation, you’re right. We had intended that the pilot would’ve been happening by the end of last year but coronavirus held that back,” he said.

He in an interview said officials are having consultations with the health authorities and indigenous communities with importing of kava to begin early next year.

“When the kava ban was put in place many years ago, that was in relation to some concerns about it coming into remote indigenous communities.

“It has unfortunately been somewhat delayed as a result of coronavirus but we intend to progress it over the back end of this year,” he said.
