Officiating at Thursday's opening of the Cakaudrove Provincial Council meeting on Taveuni, chief guest and Minister for Agriculture Lieutenant Colonel Inia Seruiratu told council members that government was looking at developing and providing equal opportunities to those outside urban areas.

Lt-Col Seruiratu said government's development projects were aimed at providing opportunities for the people.
