ACTING Commissioner Northern Alipate Bolalevu says the Northern Development Board has served its purpose well since its establishment.

Describing its first board meeting a success, Mr Bolalevu said a lot of important issues were discussed by the members.

"There have been a lot of queries about our roads and that has also been a worthy discussion and a positive one as well," he said.

"The board looks at potential development issues in the North and these issues are brought to government departments."

Mr Bolalevu said development issues such as the hydro on Taveuni, the Nabouwalu-Dreketi highway, poultry farms and roads that were discussed over the past years had turned out positive.

"We can see from our own eyes government's commitment to developments in the North and work is actually happening. This is all for the sake of helping the people of Vanua Levu through these developments."
