“We planned for the talanoa session to cater for two hours but at the end of the day, the decision makers are here and most of the questions and concerns raised, the delegates were satisfied with the response,” Mr Delasau said.
“Upon our consultations with the permanent secretary of iTaukei Affairs and the Prime Minister who is also the Minister of iTaukei Affairs, we decided to continue on with the program until the end of the day,” he said.
Mr Delasau said most of the resolutions through the district council meetings were raised through the talanoa session.
