Network, villagers told

VILLAGERS on Kadavu have been advised to establish a network with their people who are well-off but do not live on the island.

Roko tui Kadavu Eroni Vunisa said they would ask the people to adopt this initiative instead of relying on government assistance.

"We have noticed that only few villages are developed because they associate themselves with their people in Suva and abroad," Mr Vunisa said.

He said this relationship was important because people needed to play their part in developing the island, adding Kadavu contributed a lot to the national economy even though it was a poorly developed island.

Mr Vunisa said Kadavu would focus its development on the promotion of good governance, fighting the increase in lifestyle diseases, promoting communal support for education, improving water supply with government support, promoting environment conservation and risk management and reducing inaccessibility by working with the government to increase the number of roads and jetties.
