PEOPLE of Tailevu were able to raise their concerns with the Prime Minister on issues that affect them during his visit to Nausori yesterday.

Issues that were raised were on the Nausori Airport expansion plans with Airports Fiji Limited, water problems for those not having proper water supply, scholarships for iTaukei students and delays on government projects in the province.

Turaga na Tui Nabau Semi Matalau asked the Prime Minister during the talanoa session about the progress on the Nausori Airport stating that most of the landowners were still waiting for a report from Airports Fiji Limited regarding the development projects.

Mr Matalau said they had been waiting to see such developments take place, since it would bring in more tourists and more business for the people.

He said this had been raised often in past provincial council meetings but progress remained to be seen.

TLTB general manager Alipate Qetaki confirmed that discussions have been taking place regarding the development project for the Nausori Airport.

He said Airports Fiji Limited and TLTB would be meeting again in the upcoming month to discuss the valuation issue for the project.

Namalata district rep Moape Naiduki said they hoped government could assist them in providing the water project for Namau in Tailevu this year.

Mr Naiduki said he was grateful the Prime Minister was able to listen to their grievances and address the issue during the talanoa session.
