Time to step up

Luke Rawalai
Thursday, January 30, 2014

THE China Railway First Group is poised for success as Sunday marks the Chinese new year of the horse.

Company spokesman Donald Singh says the year has started with renewed hope and with new challenges as the company continued working on existing projects in the face of adversities such as logistics, weather and terrain.

Mr Singh said as Fiji geared up for further economic growth this year, they felt the time was right for international enterprises like CRFG to step up its performances and throw its weight behind the country's development initiatives.

"Vanua Levu is a great example of an area that will soon unlock its vast economic potential," he said.

"Bus companies servicing the Suva to Labasa route are testament to development, procuring brand new buses to run on upgraded roads and more and more people are now more confident to make these trips.

"Vast areas of land that lie idle will soon become hives of economic activity as more people reach these areas on a more regular and convenient basis."
