Tuesday, April 08, 2014

A DEVELOPMENT plan is being formulated by the Commissioner Northern's office to expedite economic growth in the North.

Acting Commissioner Northern Alipate Bolalevu yesterday said the plan was formulated and approved during the Northern divisional development board meeting late last month.

"This is a five-year plan aimed at enhancing developments in the North.

"The plan will be covering some major projects and the areas we are looking at are agriculture, forestry, fisheries and infrastructure to name a few.

"Our focus is targeted at rural areas. This is part of government's move to improve the livelihoods of people, especially in rural areas."

At the recent government roadshow in Nadogo, Agriculture Minister Lieutenant Colonel Inia Seruiratu said it was only proper for the plan to be adopted through a partnership approach.
