Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has revealed that government will look into setting aside $15 million to upgrade the Rotuma airport.
Speaking to the people of Rotuma during a recent visit, Bainimarama says this will be allocated for in next year’s budget.
We talked about upgrading Rotuman airport. The Fiji Roads Authority is here. They have briefed us. They on to it. But in addition to that, for heavier aircraft, additional aircraft to come in, we will have to allocate some funds of about 15 million dollars for next year’s budget. We will have a look at that. I don’t think there should not be any problem, because again comparing what we want to be done in Rotuma, that’s really not much. $15 million is not much according to the improvement that we want to be done in Rotuma.
The Fiji Roads Authority was also recently in Rotuma carrying out groundwork for the upgrade.
