The office of the Commissioner Western Division is in full support of the Nadi Town Council’s move to transit the town into a city.
Commissioner Western Division, Lieutenant Colonel Manasa Tagicakibau said he has had discussions with the Chief Executive officer of the Council, Peter Dinning.
“We talked about some issues and we are supporting them in terms of giving approvals in some of the land issues that they wish to develop. Might it be a state land, the approval comes from my office, so we are assisting them in that manner,” Lt. Colonel Tagicakibau said.
He said they were also assisting in terms of bringing in investors to Nadi.
“Some of the investors are wishing to set up businesses here in Nadi. We continue to rope in the Nadi Town Council so that they are in the know and everything fits into their bigger plan of moving Nadi town to city status,” Lt. Colonel Tagicakibau said.
He said most of these interested investors were coming in from overseas wishing to invest in Fiji.
Meanwhile, Lt. Colonel Tagicakibau said he is also pleased with the rapid developments that were taking place in the Western Division.
“This is an exciting time for the Western Division. You look around and you see all these developments coming up and our west economy is booming. The West is certainly the economic hub of the country,” he said.
Lt. Colonel Tagicakibau said Lautoka City is also transforming quite rapidly especially with the recent opening of the Tappoo City Complex and Prince Charles Park and other businesses.
