Province to work with State

AN integrated rural development approach headed by the Commissioner Western Commander Joeli Cawaki will benefit the province of Nadroga-Navosa.

Nadroga-Navosa Provincial Council assistant roko Rusiate Raidaveta said the integrated rural approach headed by government would see more of its villages receive services like electricity and water supply.

In November last year, Cdr Cawaki and a government delegation toured various government facilities for inspection.

During the tour, the Commander also met village headmen to identify the needs of each village while working with government on each development project for the province. These included the construction of a medical facility in Cuvu.

Mr Raidaveta said while developments from last year would continue into 2013, other issues had also cropped up.

"While we were trying to recover from the 2012 floods, our rehabilitation works took a backward step when Tropical Cyclone Evan hit the Western Division," he said.

"Although we, in Sigatoka, did not have a lot of damage, places like Vatulele and Malolo were severely affected. Right now, the focus is on these places.

"For the rest of us, we're using the last of the assistance provided to us following the March floods."
