Lotus Construction (Fiji) Limited is helping the Fijian economy grow.

Its director Sunil Chand confirmed this during the inauguration of the $4million Westfield Private Villas last Saturday by the Minister for Housing and Local Government, Parveen Kumar.

National Federation Party leader Biman Prasad was also present.

The villas are built close to Nadi International Airport.

“This project is my way of giving something back to the land of my birth,” Mr Chand said.

“The 28 villas opened is small step towards the realisation of my commitment to Fiji and my ancestors who sacrificed like others to make Fiji what it is today.”

Mr Chand spent two decades in Sydney, Australia – leaving Fiji in 1990 for greener pastures and returned to show his commitment to Fiji.

“I hope this modest investment will boost tourism which has become the largest revenue earner for Fiji,” Mr Chand said.

“We plan to make further improvement to this project. The villas are targeted for former residents who wish to return to Fiji, those who want to own a holiday house and those who would want to retire in Fiji. The villas will be sold for about $200,000 each and offers are coming in with some already booked.”

They have other projects like a four-storey building which will house 14 apartments and the building of the Westfield Motel in Nadi.

Mr Kumar said the investment would contribute to the rise in investments by Fijians.

“Investors like Sunil believe we are on the right path and has acted on that and on behalf of the Fijian Government I thank him sincerely for that,” Mr Kumar said.

“This investment will augur well with Government’s intent to line Nadi up to become the third city of this country. An increase in its residency through projects such as this will fuel that drive.”

He said the investment was a positive vision to bring people back move Fiji forward.
