“We are now looking at avenues to help develop our province and this is one way of doing it. It’s hard but it can be done.”

Additionally, the province is exploring the establishment of wholesale distributions at various points in Kadavu to assist shopkeepers in light of the high freight rates associated with maritime vessels serving the region and its surrounding islands.

The upcoming Kadavu Provincial Council meeting in June is expected to further solidify plans and strategies for the province’s development initiatives.
