Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has shown his support for the growth of Nadi township boundary.

“I cannot prejudge Government’s decision on Nadi’s proposal, but I do know that a city is a living, growing thing,” he said yesterday while officiating in the dedication of Voivoi Kindergarten at Legalega, Nadi.

“Nadi is growing. As you know, the Nadi Town Council has submitted plans to extend the town boundaries to Naisoso, here in Legalega and the Votualevu area in the coming months, putting Nadi on a fast-track to become the third city of Fiji.

“A city changes over time with a lot of opportunity for growth as well. It needs room to grow. It often needs to absorb fast-growing adjacent areas inorder to provide services efficiently and ensure that development is coherent.

“Legalega is a part of that growth. You are next to the Nadi International Airport, which is the gateway to Fiji, and of course, to our tourism industry, which has driven growth in Nadi.

“Of course, a growing city – one that offers a lot of opportunity like Nadi does, usually attracts young families. People want to lay down roots here and build their careers and their lives here. And of course, that almost always mean children.”

He said new subdivisions had been springing up around Nadi.

“They bring with them a demand for shopping, wider roads, traffic control, sanitation, medical care, and of course schools,” he said.

Mr Bainimarama is currently on a tour in the Western Division.
