COMMISSIONER Central Lieutenant Colonel Laisenia Tuitubou conducted his first inspection of government projects in the province of Serua and Namosi early this week.
Lt-Col Tuitubou said he had seen a lot of improvement in terms of projects being completed on time for the Central Division. He said he hoped that all government projects for this year would be completed and all income generating projects were successful as had been the trend in the last two years.
"A lot of funds have been allocated for the Central Division, particularly on income generating projects, which is why we need to go the extra mile in making all our projects successful this year," Lt-Col Tuitubou said.
"We have seen a lot of commitment towards income generating projects, particularly poultry and ginger, for the Serua and Namosi provinces.
"Ginger farmers are earning a lot from their farms and poultry farmers are thinking of extending their business, which will really boost our economy," he said.
Lt-Col Tuitubou said it was important for the agricultural officers looking after the projects to collect data and information on various farms that were under the Rural Outer Island Agriculture Development Program (ROI) projects. He urged officers in the division to implement all projects under their departments this year.
