THE Nadi Town Council is working with the Health Ministry to help declare the Jet Set Town smoke-free.

Special administrator Robin Ali said this was one of the ways in which the council was working to improve the town.

"We and the other stakeholders are working very hard towards restoring the beauty and reputation of our tourist town to its glory days," he said.

"The Nadi Town Council is working very closely with United Nations Women in a project named M4C that is Market for Change.

"This project is designed to upskill market vendors in doing their business professionally to earn what they deserve and improve their quality of life.

"It also improves the standard of the market in many ways as well."

Mr Ali said these steps were necessary to ensure Nadi remained a great venue for tourists and locals alike.

"Nadi is the gateway to the rest of Fiji as tourists, business clients and government officials travel to see our beautiful shores.

"Nadi is known for its beautiful smiles and five-star hotels that provide employment to thousands."

He said new developments suc as the $804,000 government-funded extension to the Nadi market would be crucial to assist the hotel industry.
