ISSUES of development and dengue fever will be the main topics of discussions during the Nadi district council meetings which will run for a week from Monday, March 17.

Roko tui Nadi Sairusi Wara said the feedback from the various districts were based on issues of water, electricity and roads.

"The dengue fever epidemic will also be on top of the list because of the many cases," said Mr Wara.

Mr Wara said the updates on various projects undertaken in the province would also be discussed.

"There are many projects in regards to the electricity in the villages and water supply.

"In some places too the roads have been damaged by flooding."

Nadi district officer Jiuta Waqavonovono said the major operation in Nadi was the anti-dengue campaign and this would be further stressed at the meetings.

Mr Wara said the issue of over consumption of kava would also be highlighted because it had been cited as the cause of low productivity in the province.

The meeting will be held at Namoli Village for the district of Rukuruku, on Tuesday at Yavuna Village for the district of Nawaka.

It will be held at Sikituru on Wednesday and Thursday at Dratabu Village for the district of Nadi.
