The Nausori Chamber of Commerce will be exploring avenues to lure customers back to the town.
Chamber of Commerce president Moti Lal said: “We really have to look into how we retain our customers from Nakasi, Nasinu and other areas.
“We will soon be embarking on membership drive for our membership numbers to increase to 200 to 350 members.
“Initially we started off with 200 to 300 business houses, however, most of them have migrated but right now we have close to 100 to 150 members.”

Challenges for the chamber

The challenge faced by the chamber of commerce is contributed to emerging businesses within the Suva to Nausori corridor.
“The development of business within the Nausori to Suva corridor is affecting the business here and that’s a big challenge for us,” he said.
Mr Lal said they expected businesses to contribute to the carnivals because they will benefit.
“Another problem is business people’s expectations are high when a carnival is held but at the same time the contribution made is not what it should be,” he said.
“As soon as we rejuvenate the chamber of commerce, I think a lot of things will change.”
By mid-February, the chamber of commerce members will meet to discuss and plan their activities for the year.
