3K for Rewa eco-tourism

Thursday, January 24, 2013

ABOUT $300,000 has been injected into the Mataisuva Eco Tourism project in Rewa this year under the Ministry of Provincial Development.

The funds will be allocated to the grid extension, water supply and extension of a bure under the eco-tourism project.

Rewa provincial administrator Ravindra Narayan said $200,000 had been allocated for;

* The grid extension, which would be done by the FEA;

* Water supply for the eco-tourism project; and

* $100,000 will go directly to the expansion of the bure.

Mr Narayan said the project was not fully operational because of the lack of water and electricity.

"We need electricity and water supplied to the project," Mr Narayan said.

"In order for investors to come in, we need all services provided and so more people would be interested in visiting the province.

"We have a lot of potential in terms of eco-tourism but people need assistance in order to start their businesses."
