The second round of district meetings in the province of Bua for over a period of nine days begins today at Nasaisaivua in Kubulau.

Tomorrow it will be at Navakasali in Wainunu.

Tui Wainunu Ratu Orisi Baleitavea said representatives from all Government departments and Non-Government Organisations would be present.

“For us in Wainunu we will be discussing about the development issues,” Ratu Orisi said.

“One of the areas that we are looking at is the need to increase agricultural products.

We are going to look for support and assistance from Ministry of Agriculture and other stakeholders.”

“The other things in the agenda for discussion would be bauxite, logging and sandalwood planting in villages and settlements which has already begun,” he said.

“One of the suggestions we going to put forward is the idea of having a hydro in Wainunu where there is a big water fall.

“We are going to seek for more consultations and see for opening doors of this project that would benefit the larger community.”

Meanwhile, Roko Tui Bua Aisake Nadunu said they had made a proposal about raising funds for a commercial lot and lease at Nabouwalu.

“This would be for a Nabouwalu town project and we would put it forward during the district meetings,” Mr Nadunu said.

“This would be a two year fundraising plan and we planned to raise $40,000.”

The meeting will end on April 19 at Naiviqiri in Navakasiga.
