CASINO developers One Hundred Sands Limited are still silent on the progress of a report that was submitted to the government late last year.

One Hundred Sands Ltd chairman Larry Claunch said the company would deliver a full report on the work they planned to do this year.

"We are choosing not to make any comments at this point in time but we do have a full report ready and it will be out very soon. But I can say that everything is good at the moment," Mr Claunch said.

Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum had confirmed receiving a report from the casino developers in November, 2013.

The US-based company was granted an exclusive licence to construct and manage Fiji's first casino on Denarau Island, Nadi in December 2011. The company is required to pay a monthly penalty of $US100,000 ($F186,000) from October 1, 2013 because of the delay in construction.

Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama had officiated at the groundbreaking ceremony in April, 2012 and construction was expected to be completed for the $290million casino complex by October, 2013.

The company had promised employment for 1600 locals during the construction and operation of the casino.
