Council takes measures

ALL proactive measures carried out by the Ra provincial office are aimed at protecting multi-million dollar businesses planned to boost the tourism industry in the province, according to an official.

Ra provincial administrator Kelepi Kubunameca said work was underway to seal the deal for three resorts which would cost about $15million.

Mr Kubunameca said as part of an anti-dengue campaign, natural disaster awareness teams were working overtime to ensure no negative report came out of the province.

"We have done this with the vision of keeping a good reputation for the province so investors will not shy away from the projects," he said.

Mr Kubunameca said the $7m Duadua Resort project owned by Quality Properties Ltd and another $5m resort to be built by the Bimas Group of Companies would generate business for the economically-starved province.

"Another $3m dollar resort is also ready to be finalised soon.

"This is why we have used all our resources to keep the dengue epidemic down and also kept constant watch during this threat of a natural disaster."

So far, Ra had recorded the lowest number of dengue fever cases.
