PRIME Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama lauded the opening of a $3million shopping complex in Nadi and said it was a sign that government policies aimed at increasing investment were working.

Commodore Bainimarama said the confidence shown by former resident Bobby Khan in returning to Fiji after 22 years and establishing the multi-million dollar complex at Carreras near Votualevu was proof that government's multiple nationality policy was working and helping ordinary Fijians.

"Bobby Khan and his wife Azreena are among a growing number of Fijians who are coming home after establishing successful businesses abroad," he said.

"They're putting their hard earned cash back into their country of birth and helping ordinary Fijians in the process.

"The jobs being created here are jobs for ordinary people. People whose earnings filter back into their communities and strengthen the general economic base," said Commodore Bainimarama.

Mr Khan applauded the Bainimarama government for having the foresight to allow dual citizenship which he said had brought him back home after being away for 22 years.

"After the completion of this project, I will be looking at establishing a resort near Sonaisali and am also looking at the possibility of setting up a hospital as well," he said.
