Investment to create more jobs in Ba
October 22, 2019 4:45 pm
A new shopping complex will soon provide more job opportunities for people in Nukuloa Ba.
This follows laying stage one of the foundation for the new complex by Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama.
Bainimarama says the investment made by a local couple marks an economic boost for the rural community and opportunities fostered between investors and traditional landowners.
“And this project could not have been done without the forward-thinking landowners of Vunadoi Subdivision, particularly Toge townland and the TLTB who worked to make this land available on a long term lease basis. Without certainty, we can’t have investments and it is absolutely critical for landowners and entrepreneurs to work together to create that certainty so that everyone can prosper.”
Bainimarama adds that Nasura Investments will also be working with tour operators and hoteliers in the Nadi area to create opportunities that can benefit the people of Ba.
“Stage one will house a modern supermarket, six smaller shops, and space for banking ATM facilities. Next year we will see the development of stage two with a service station and all associated facilities and eventually the commercial space will grow with stage three including provisions to provide tourists with real reasons to come here and spend their time and their money with us.”
The Prime Minister also stressed that the project compliments government infrastructural and economic investments in Nukuloa.
