THE heads of government departments in the North have taken a step closer to ensuring all their proposed projects for next year are well prioritised.

The heads converged on Muanidevo in Dreketi, Macuata, for a two-day meeting to integrate and map out their 2015 development plans for the Northern Division.

Acting Commissioner Northern Alipate Bolalevu said the primary purpose of the meet was to plan for the proposed economic infrastructure and social developments for the division.

"The government budgetary committee is expected to sit at the end of this month (May) and that's why we have decided to come together prior to the committee's sitting," he said.

"This is an opportunity for all the heads to come and deliver their plans for their respective ministries and once we have all these, we will be able to consolidate a report and send it to the Ministry of Finance.

"These are all proposed projects for next year and once they are included in the budget, the ministries will work on them."

Mr Bolalevu said the meeting was also an opportunity for them to dialogue and identify ways on how best they could work together to develop the North.
