Towns Boost Interest For Green Competition

There are positive reactions from the engagement of municipalities in the green and clean town competition.

The competition encourages commitment in promoting clean, safe and pristine environment for the Fijian people.

The Assistant Minister for Agriculture, Rural and Maritime Development and National Disaster Management, Joeli Cawaki, said the programme would positively contribute to national development.

“This national programme has positively contributed to the marked improvements of what we can see in these municipalities,” Mr Cawaki said.

He said more was needed to be done while launching the National Environment Week celebrations for the North at Savusavu yesterday.

“I call on us all, especially the travelling public to be extra mindful of the hard work of our municipal councils.

“For people to behave accordingly to contribute towards their green and clean town visions.

“Government, in its seriousness to ensure that Fiji’s natural pristine environment is sustained, adopted a Green Growth Framework which will be incorporated in the new visions and plans in the next 5-20 years.”

Prime Minister and Minister for i’Taukei Affairs and Sugar Industry, Voreqe Bainimarama launched the Green Growth Framework at Suvavou House, Suva, on Monday.
