Fishers of the Bua province will benefit from the new Kubulau ice plant that was opened by the Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama in Bua yesterday.

Mr Bainimarama also opened the Kubulau Government Station and borehole.

Mr Bainimarama said these projects would increase individual revenue for villagers in the district.

“I would like to thank the Korean International Co-operation Agency, that donated the plant; your generosity is appreciated by not only me, but the hundreds of Bua province fishermen and their families,” Mr Bainimarama said.

“Our local fishermen will no longer have to go to the urban areas to store their catch, which will eliminate waste and noticeably increase their individual revenue.”

The Kubulau Government Station will benefit over 34 villages and settlements throughout the Kubulau, Wainunu, and Wailevu districts.

Mr Bainimarama said 5000 Fijians would directly access the Government services.

“I look forward to continuing to watch this Government Station serve this community and grow in the years to come,” Mr Bainimarama said.

“We are already planning to relocate the Namalata Nursing Station, and later on construct a new Police station and other ministry hubs-extending access to essential government services, to make life in the north as easy and convenient as life on Viti Levu.”
