Taiwan Quick Take: Cabinet goes bananas


The weekly Cabinet meeting began yesterday with bananas as Premier Su Tseng-chang (蘇貞昌) encouraged his ministers and agency heads to eat more bananas to help promote consumption. The bananas were brought by Council of Agriculture Chairman Su Jia-chyuan (蘇嘉全), who told the Cabinet that banana farmers have been suffering from declining sales. He said the Ministry of Justice had ordered 500 boxes (about 8,000kg) of the fruit, while the Ministry of National Defense had ordered at least 200 tonnes to be added to the monthly menus for military personnel.
