While the Tui Wainunu, Ratu Orisi Baleitavea, preferred not to divulge details of the submissions being put together by chiefs, he said the vanua of Bua had outlined important issues they felt would take Fiji forward.
"We already met and discussed in the bose vanua that the province of Bua will have a collective submission under one umbrella," he said.
