Roko tui Tailevu Ratu Semisi Saukawa said the development of infrastructure in the province was of utmost importance to the council meeting that started yesterday.
Well be addressing issues relating to the development of the province, these issues will include education and infrastructure.
With regards to development the province is a bit behind the rest of the provinces, for myself Im from the yasayasa vaka Ra and theres quite a difference here, he said.
You can see this when you look at the village of Namara, it is twenty minutes drive from Nausori tTown and yet they use a borehole to get their water instead of receiving piped water.

Since the province of Tailevu is affected by flooding we will also be looking at ways to improve our capabilities to deal with this, he said.
