WORKS on government projects on Taveuni and surrounding islands have progressed well, says acting commissioner northern Alipate Bolalevu.

Last week he visited Taveuni and Yacata to inspect government projects in progress from last year.

"Some have just started and the projects have progressed well with work almost completed for a few projects," Mr Bolalevu said.

"We visited Yacata Island and the water project work has started there, so that is something we went to visit.

"So far work has been good and is on track. We know these project works will be completed on time."

Mr Bolalevu said they also encouraged the villagers of Yacata to start generating income projects to help them financially.

"The small businesses like bee-keeping and virgin coconut oil which is in demand can be operated by the villagers.

"They have a lot of coconuts on the island, so making VCO should be no problem.

"We want to help them set up because they have the resources and the fact that it is in demand should not be a problem."
