Monday, January 28, 2013

THE Sigatoka Town Council received about $3million worth of building applications last year.

Council chief executive officer Anand Sami Pillay said the application forms showed the eagerness of investors and business people wanting to set up business in Sigatoka.

He said the applications signalled a positive vibe.

"To receive these many applications shows the confidence of people to invest in Sigatoka," Mr Pillay said.

"This is a huge boost to the Sigatoka economy and it also shows that development is growing quickly.

"Most new buildings were constructed last year with many more to be completed this year."

Mr Pillay also acknowledged the initiative by government in setting up offices in the area.

He said the council was working with hoteliers and other stakeholders in beautifying the town.

"Thousands of tourists visit our town every year contributing to the well-being of the community through their spending therefore we are doing our best in beautifying the town area," Mr Pillay said.
