Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama will officially open the new Rakiraki market tomorrow.

Minister for Local Government Premila Kumar announced this via a government statement this evening.

The Rakiraki market, which is a modern spacious facility, was designed to provide a facility for market vendors and consumers in the province of Ra.

Mrs Kumar said while the aim of the new Rakiraki market was to accommodate the increasing number of vendors, it also represented new opportunities for the farmers and entrepreneurs of Ra Province and Rakiraki Town.

The Rakiraki market was funded by the Fijian Government, with the assistance of the Australian government and the UN Women.
