THE Labour Ministry has requested the Labasa Town Council come up with a development plan or project to suit the needs of tourists visiting the Northern town.
At a recent meeting with council officials, Labour Minister Jone Usamate said tourists nowadays were very cultural and it was only proper the council developed something suitable for tourists.
"A lot of tourists are very cultural and they look for cultural and traditional stuff.
"With the developments slowly taking place in Labasa, it's only fitting for the council to work with the stakeholders responsible and come up with plans to accommodate tourists," Mr Usamate said.
Council health inspector Mohammed Faiz Ali said they were working with the Labasa Tourism Association to ensure tourists were well-entertained while visiting the Northern town.
Association chairman Paul Jaduram said they have always included cultural tours in their tourist visit programs.
