THE Savusavu Town Council has secured a $150,000 budget from government to upgrade and extend the Savusavu market.

Council special administrator Vijay Chand said the budget allocation was provided by the Ministry of Local Government.

He said the project would bring about positive outcomes for the town.

"It will allow for more trading and economic activity for the people of Savusavu," he said.

"This new area will cater for at least 100 vendors who can sell their produce in a much wider space."

He said the budget was made possible through government's assistance.

"We are really grateful to government for allocating this money to us because it is something we've been wanting for quite some time."
