THE Bainimarama government has done a lot of development for the people of Vanua Levu, says outgoing Minister for Immigration Joketani Cokanasiga.
He said the major road development works carried out along the Nabouwalu Dreketi highway and from Nagigi to Bagasau in Cakaudrove were platforms of growth for businesses.
"It will bring more investors into the area because roads will be done by then and other infrastructure development would be made available," he said.
"Government has also brought water to affected villages and islands by building more water systems and tanks.
"Where there has been no roads and electricity, government has taken that need to the people."
For the Seaqaqa Dreketi areas where electricity has been supplied to, Mr Cokanasiga said this was another opportunity provided to farmers to boost their little farming businesses.
"Government has done so much for the people of the North including bringing closer services to them through the opening of government departments," he said.
