Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama will be presenting small and micro business grants of $1000 to selected recipients in the Nothern Division next week.

Commissioner Northern Jovesa Vocea confirmed this to the Fiji Sun yesterday.

He said the presentation in Savusavu would be held after the opening of the Buca Bay Road.

From Savusavu the Prime Minister will travel to Taveuni by a naval boat to officiate at the presentation there.

The district officer (DO) Taveuni, Kalvati Rabuka, confirmed the PM would be in Taveuni on Wednesday.

Mr Bainimarama had earlier said that the presentation of the grants was in line with Government’s announcement of the $1million small business grant in the 2015 Budget.

He said Government’s original aim with this programme was to provide 1000 recipients with $1000 for their respective small business ventures.

The PM had said the response had been so overwhelming that they had decided to dramatically expand the programme.
