This council has set an example for all others in Fiji: DPC northern Bolalevu

The Bua Provincial Council had its new website launched by council chairman Alipate Radrodro at Naulumatua House in Nabowalu, Bua this week.

And divisional planning officer northern Alipate Bolalevu said the Bua Provincial Council was the first provincial office in Fiji to have its own website.

“I am happy to say that this council has set an example for all others in Fiji,” Mr Bolalevu said.

“This website would greatly enable students to access information on Bua history and its people.

“Moreover, it would promote tourism and boost the economic development as I was told that photographs of vegetation, sandalwood and beautiful scenery would be presented on the website.”

The launch of the new website now enables people of Bua in Fiji and around the world to have on-line access to information on the history and all activities of the province and the Bua Provincial Council.

The event also coincided with the opening of the two-day second round of council meetings.

Mr Radrodro during the meeting said an Australian Peace Corps volunteer, Nathan Reid, who would be with the council for a year, designed and set up the website.

In an interview, Mr Reid said the design of the website was created in such a way that any person of Buan origin can browse through and access information on the province and the council.

“We have also included many projects undertaken by the villages, events such as Adi Bua Festival, names of all Roko Tui Bua who have served the province and upcoming events,” Mr Reid said.

“Most importantly we have the email and phone contact of the council which anyone can freely contact.”
