Business booms

Shayal Devi
Friday, August 01, 2014

INVESTOR confidence in Rakiraki is growing, says interim special administrator Ralulu Cirikiyasawa.

He said new businesses were expected to be established in the town by next month.

"Kasabias will be setting up a new shop here and there will be a second-hand machinery shop with a national tyre centre also opening," Mr Cirikiyasawa said.

"Rakiraki, being a small town already, has three hardware outlets operating so with the opening of these businesses, it shows us that the owners have confidence in our economy."

He said while this would boost business, it would also allow other investors to see the potential of setting up shop in Rakiraki.

And as business continues to boom, the Rakiraki Town Council is also putting in place initiatives that could revive the business scene.

"As of this week, we will work towards reviving the Ra Chamber of Commerce."

He said this would be an opportune time for members of the business community to come forward and discuss issues.

"We had the chamber of commerce in the past and we are hoping this meeting bears fruit."

The council meets tomorrow.
