A $30 million multi-purpose sports complex will soon change the landscape of Seaqaqa in Macuata.
Commissioner Northern Lieutenant Colonel Ilai Moceica revealed the project at a government heads of department meeting in Labasa this week.
The Chinese government funded project is expected to bring in changes and major developments to the people of Seaqaqa once it is completed.
Lt-Col Moceica said the sports complex would not only benefit the Seaqaqa area but the country as a whole.
"We are looking forward to developing the Seaqaqa area to have it as a growth centre reinforcing services for communities in the area," he said.
"We thank the Chinese government for funding the state-of-the-art multi-purpose sporting complex in the community of Seaqaqa as this move will develop the town and its standard to another level.
"The sports complex will also promote professional sports for our youth in the north and further develop their sporting talents which has a demanding market out there not only in the game of rugby but other sports like football and more," said Lt-Col Moceica.
Lt-Col Moceica said the project was an effort of government in promoting socio-economic schemes in line with the sixth pillar of the Peoples Charter for Change in making more land available for productive and social purposes.
