CANBERRA, Oct 12, 2019, RNZ. Australia’s government will ease the country’s restrictions on kava imports from the Pacific, reported the Radio New Zealand.

The announcement of a kava pilot programme was made as Australia’s prime minister, Scott Morrison, visited Fiji on Friday.

Mr Morrison said the amount of kava that can be imported for personal consumption will be doubled from two to four kilograms by the end of the year.

A pilot programme for commercial kava imports will also be implemented by the end of 2020.
