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.

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.
