Fiji is set on a course…the path of the next level of economic development and progress, says a younger generation business leader..

Damodar Group chief executive, Div Damodar, made these comments yesterday following the announcement of the provisional elections results.

Mr Damodar said the Fijian Election 2014 results, what has been displayed so far, has shown there is a change in the mindset and also a change in Political Science environment of Fiji.

“There is a change, a generation shift in thinking by the young 18 years old and also by the women,” he said.

“Most importantly, the rural results have displayed things have changed.

“What people want is economic progress, development, no racial politics and a new Fiji for all . This has a big impact on the entire thinking on investment opportunities,” he said.

 

Positive hopes

While FijiFirst is leading the elections after the revelation of the provisional results, Mr Damodar said he would rather wait for the final announcement by the Supervisor of Elections before commenting further.

However, he said in the event FijiFirst party officially announced winner, than he thinks the part will follow what they have set out in their manifesto.

Mr Damodar said his expectation for the future of the country is extremely positive and the group hopes to do further investment around the country.

He feels the “Look North” policy is crucial as Fiji needs to widen and expand its growth potential from a geographical perspective.

“Vanua Levu and the outer Islands need to be included in the GDP formula and growth in these areas must be maximised to their fullest potential,” he said.

“Our group is looking at constructing a Damodar City development in Labasa for the people of the North and also entice more tourists to the area.”

Mr Damodar said he looks forward to Government’s support for this project.

“We also feel the set up of FNU and USP centres in Labasa is a very good move as it takes education to the students,” he said.

“This is unlike in previous years where students had to come to Viti Levu for tertiary and uni education.”
