Nanise Loanakadavu In Vunisea, Kadavu
Thursday, February 13, 2014

VUNISEA is no longer some sleepy backwater place largely cut off from the rest of the world.

Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama said this when he opened a telecentre at Vunisea Secondary School on Kadavu yesterday morning.

He told students, teachers and parents the telecentre placed them at the centre of the world of information and was certain to transform their lives for the better.

"You are no longer isolated. With a click of a mouse, you can access information from the four corners of the Earth. Using a chat facility like Skype, you can speak directly with relatives or friends anywhere in the world."

About 20 telecentres have opened across Viti Levu, Vanua Levu and Ovalau.
