Council waits for chief

THE Tavua Town Council will stop talks with potential investors until a new Tui Tavua is elected.

Council CEO Tulsi Ram said the late Tui Tavua, Ratu Jale Weisele Ratu, was in discussions with China-based investors before his death last year.

"I was also on the Chinese tour with him and we had talks with some Chinese investors who were interested in setting up their businesses in Tavua," Mr Ram said.

"Right now talks with the investors are on hold."

He said the council would decide their next step once the next traditional head of the Tavua district was appointed.

"We are talking with village elders and they are still very much interested in continuing talks with the investors.

"But that will all continue once the next Tui Tavua is appointed."

Meanwhile, the Tavua Chamber of Commerce and Industry is preparing to hold its first meeting of the year.

Acting president Pavin Anand said the business community in Tavua had yet to discuss new projects or investments they would like to implement this year.

"Well we are going to have our talks in the coming days and hopefully we can talk about what we can do," said Mr Anand.

"Right now there is one major economic earner for the town and that is mining so we are trying to do other things apart from that."
