FEDHASA Media coverage to “encourage” Government to facilitate changes necessary for the industry

Besides being in direct contact with Government – media coverage helps bolter the message for the changes our industry needs in order to survive and then thrive

Please see FEDHASA’s media coverage this past month, where through the media we try to get the message across to Government regarding the necessary changes our industry needs.  FEDHASA is also in direct contact with Government regarding the issues – however simultaneously receiving media coverage appears to assist in getting our message across more thoroughly.
