iTaukei Land Trust Board (TLTB) has been included in the negotiations between Goundar Shipping and the landowners on the Tailevu North coast for the finalization of the procurement of a land for a jetty to be built for shipping services for the maritime islands connecting Natovi to Nabouwalu.

“The TLTB has joined the negotiations and we will be sorting out the situation to begin the construction of the jetty,” said Goundar Shipping  managing director George Goundar.

Mr Goundar said the $5million wharf would be focusing on the market for smaller ports and jetties in the areas between Natovi and Nabouwalu.

He said with TLTB participation he was hopeful that the construction of the new wharf would begin soon as it would open the opportunity for the smaller vessels that would joining the Goundar shipping fleet to service smaller islands and remote routes.

Mr Goundar said the construction of the wharf would not only be beneficial for the transportation of people but would be an added bonus for market possibilities for landowners and villagers in the vicinity.
