THE Japanese Government has committed $300million on flood mitigation work in Nadi.

And two Japanese experts are assisting the Nadi Town Council and government prepare a report for the best flood control practices.

Once completed, the report is expected to provide solutions that would benefit about 50,000 people in the river delta and Nadi River Basin — and tourism stakeholders.

Nadi special administrator Robin Ali said the two experts from the Japan International Cooperation Agency would submit a detailed and comprehensive report on proposed solutions once assessments were completed.

"They are working with the Ministry of Agriculture's Land and Water Resource Management Unit to compile a report that would best address the issue of flooding in Nadi," he said.

"I can say that it's going to bring a lot of relief to the Nadi people."
