Call for expansion

SEAQAQA continues to be an important business point for the people of Macuata heralding calls from business owners in the district for more expansion.

Seaqaqa Shopping Centre director Hasim Khan said the shopping mini mart was not enough for the large number of people that stopped at the busy rural community.

He said there was a market for more diverse enterprises to be opened at the area.

"We want Seaqaqa to become a town and be a hub of activity."

"If people can just take the time and resources to come and start their businesses here, we can be an important stop before people move onto Labasa and Savusavu.

"We have the market here like villages and the pine station which is not too far away from here."

The businessman also revealed his plans to expand his own business in the mini-town.

"I want to open an internet shop, a DVD shop and maybe even a clothes shop.

"Right now, the shopping centre has been meeting the demands of our rural customers but we would like to introduce new things and see where we can go from there."

"We cater for a lot of people who come all the way from Natua, Naduri and those that live here in Saqaqa," he said.

"We have a good business here and from the time that we started in 2011, we have seen our business improve."
