Minister for Employment, Productivity and Industrial Relations Semi Koroilavesau brought smiles to the faces of Tavua residents on Thursday.

Mr Koroilavesau with his team  visited the interior cane farming communities in Tavua that were affected by Tropical Cyclone Winston.

“We distributed basic items to about 60 houses. We visited Nadarivatu starting from the Government station, to villages of Lewa, Buyabuya, Vatuso, Waikubukubu, Naiyaca, Nagatagata, Nadala, and Marou.”

Mr Koroilavesau’s visit was part of a combined effort by Minister for Fisheries and Forests Osea Naiqamu and Assistant Minister for Agriculture Joeli Cawaki.

The three ministers formed two teams where Mr Naiqamu visited areas in Nadi while Mr Cawaki and Mr Koroilavesau visited areas in Dawasamu and Ra which the Prime Minister had initially visited.

“We supplied tarpaulins and solar lights in Ra as a lot of NGOs were supplying rations. We decided to concentrate in interior areas between Ba and Rakiraki,” Mr Koroilavesau said.

“We consider ourselves as an arm to the Minister responsible for NDMO Inia Seruiratu through  the Commissioner Western.

“We carry out initial response and submit reports to Commissioner Western through district officers,” he said.

“There is a huge task at hand and our effort is an insignificant dent to the work required but we hope our efforts are contributing to the overall work.”
