PRIME Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama will tour the north in two weeks time as part of an evaluation and monitoring of developments and major projects in the division.

North divisional planning officer Alipate Bolalevu said as part of the visit Commodore Bainimarama would open a few projects on Taveuni and Rabi.

He said the visit would be a platform for discussions of issues regarding development efforts within the division and how government departments were faring.

"We are finalising the program of the tour," he said.

"He will travel to Taveuni on Monday for the opening of the Taveuni South Indian School and other projects on the island," he said.

"He will be officiating at the opening of the Rabi jetty on Tuesday before returning to Savusavu, Labasa and Bua for a tour of the islands affected by Cyclone Evan.

"We are looking forward to the visit as part of our discussions on major developments currently taking place in the north," Mr Bolalevu said.
