THE total cost of government projects under the Public Sector Investment Program for the year 2011 to 2014 for Namosi province stands at $1.6million.

This was highlighted by the Namosi acting provincial administrator, Iakobo Waqanidrola, during the Namosi Provincial Council meeting in Navua yesterday.

The largest amount of funds that was given to the province was in 2011, totalling $700,000 compared to $500,000 for this year.

Mr Waqanidrola said out of the five provinces in the Central Division, Namosi was the province with the second highest number of funding from 2011 to 2014.

"There are a lot of ways in which we can move the province forward and it only depends on how hard we work towards improving the lives of the people of Namosi," he said.

"We hope that the province will work towards developing its future leaders through education. That is one of the major focus for the province now."

Commissioner Central Lieutenant Colonel Laisenia Tuitubou said they were grateful for the tremendous support given to them by the vanua of Namosi.

"We hope we will be able to complete the projects that are yet to be completed for this year and we hope the tikina representatives will assist us in such developments."
