PROVINCIAL councils are important platforms that lay down the future for the iTaukei people including their wellbeing and good governance.

Speaking at the opening of the Bua Provincial Council meeting in Nabouwalu yesterday, Ministry of iTaukei permanent secretary Savenaca Kuanislea told council members they were the ministry's eyes and ears in the province.

Mr Kaunisela said the council was a government institution of the highest order within the province.

"Therefore the duties of its members are fundamental in ensuring their people had access to development and the necessities of life," he said.

"The Ministry of iTaukei has its hopes vested on provincial councils to safeguard development within their provinces and ensure that government services are rendered to people within the province.

"Bua province is a rich province for it is well known for its natural resources and this sets it apart from the rest of the provinces around the country."

Mr Kaunisela told members of the council government was bringing development to the province.
