Goal to lift status

UPLIFTING the social and economic status of the rural people of Naitasiri was a major issue highlighted at the Naitasiri Provincial Council meeting in Vunidawa on Tuesday.

One way in which Naitasiri hopes to uplift its social and economic status is through projects in the agriculture sector.

Council chairman Eroni Moto Luveniyali thanked Rural Development permanent secretary Lieutenant Colonel Filipe Alifereti for highlighting their role in lifting the province's economic status.

Mr Luveniyali said two major issues that Naitasiri had assisted the economy with were water and electricity.

"Firstly, we generate most of the water from our province and without water, various industries and government cannot run. Our province contributes water to the overall economic and social system of Fiji," he said.

"Secondly, electricity also comes from our province. For any industry to set up they need electricity, so we are grateful that we provide these two important commodities for the nation.

"We also provide land for those from other provinces who wish to start their new life in the Capital City, so we contribute a lot to the development of the country."
