Namaka is definitely growing into a busy and very lucrative spot for busi­nesses, tourists and locals alike.

With the four-lane highway providing easy access to and from both Nadi town and Lau­toka, the little hub is easily becoming the heart of the Jet Set town.

Namaka houses several offices such as the Civil Aviation Authority of Fiji, the Me­teorological Office, several industrial and production facilities, the largest campus for the Fiji National University in the West, the new proposed Fiji Aviation academy that is currently being built, several hotels and other businesses and schools like Nadi Airport School and the Republic of the Fiji Military Forces 3FIR base.

Beautifying the environment around Nam­aka has been a project carried out by the Nadi Town Council and government in its efforts to make the little town a top notch one-stop-shop for anyone wanting to come into it.

One of the major contributions to the boom is restaurants opening up and offer­ing mouth watering meals.

A mix of Asian cuisine at anyone’s is of­fered here ranging from Japanese, Korean and Chinese.

Next to this line of shops is a Fiji Meats outlet offering prime beef and meat options for those who don’t have to travel all the way to the main town.

In an earlier speech at the ground break­ing ceremony for the Fiji Aviation Academy, Attorney-General and Minister responsible for Civil Aviation Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said that Government had lots of plans in place for Namaka.

“We want to make Namaka a one-stop shop.

“So many people who have come to Fiji just find it such a pleasant place to visit.

“And I urge all of us Fijians to hold hands in looking after our beautiful country.

“Let’s look after the environment and keep Fiji clean.”

“Fiji has been termed the Singapore of the South Pacific and we need to make our is­land nation the best there is. But we need everyone to be doing this together,” said mr Sayed-Khaiyum.

According to the Building Statistics re­leased by the Fiji Bureau of Statistics for the September Quarter of 2017, there were 74 completion certificates issued for the building projects in Fiji in 2011.

However, the number of permits granted were 140 for an estimated value of $96.16 million.
