Investment to boost city

INVESTMENT interest in Lautoka City is expected to grow over the next 12 months, says Lautoka Chamber of Commerce and Industry administrator Mohammed Salim.

Mr Salim said while the chamber had about 200 registered members, the number would grow in the coming months as infrastructure development become more visible.

"In terms of setting up businesses in Lautoka, it has been quiet over the past few months but we are expecting that to change as more and more developments are introduced within the city," he said.

He said the setting up of flea markets, micro-businesses and eco-tourism efforts were some of the few initiatives that the chamber and relevant stakeholders hoped to improve the city's economy.

He said while the chamber was focused on improving the economy of the city, it also encouraged its members to give back to the community.

"We organise blood drives for our community and with this initiative we hope to be able to provide some kind of assistance to our health authorities," added Mr Salim.
