Tagicakibau calls for progress as 3 big projects unfold down West

 

Commissioner Western Manasa Tagicakibau is calling for heads of government departments to work on getting more capital projects in the future.

He said this yesterday while announcing three major projects which were expected to be completed in the Western Division this year. “If we get more capital projects, we’re talking about millions of dollars and they need to identify them from their sectors,” Mr Tagicakibau said.

“It is also important that department heads be accountable and transparent. The Fijian Government is targeting all sectors, so we must be aware of all developments in the sugar, agriculture, fisheries, forestry industry and supporting small businesses.”

Mr Tagicakibau said Government departments would link their development plans into Government’s five-year development plan which was in its first draft copy.

“This is because we want to modernise and streamline all the modern instruments of Government,” he said.

He said it was important for department heads to be innovative and look at the operation of their organisations from a different perspective.

“It is our duty to assist Government in coming up with how best we can perform,” he said.

Meanwhile, the three major capital projects to be completed this year are the Nacula Health Centre in Yasawa, Votualevu Health Centre in Nadi and a new administration block for the new post of district officer for Korovou.

“The three capital projects are the ones with $100,000 funding. The Nacula Health Centre in Yasawa has been ongoing for three years and we aim to complete it this year,” he said.

“The second project is the Votualevu Health Centre in Nadi and the third is the administration block for the new post for the district officer for Korovou.”
