A funding of $75,000 has been set aside for the development of the Taveuni market.

Local Government Minister Premila Kumar said the funds would be used for preliminary work for the development of this market.

Market vendors on the Garden Island have had to build their own sheds in Naqara.

Another $50,000 has been allocated to service the satellite towns of Taveuni and Nabouwalu.

“I would like to urge you all to take care of the assets which are built for your benefit,” she said.

“You can assist the council by keeping our streets clean and our civic spaces vibrant and renewed.

“We need your co-ordination to maintain our infrastructure and I am confident that if we work together, this town can be an even better town than the marvellous one we already have.”
