The Special Administrators chair states that they will be working with the Fiji Ports authority so facilitate more tourist in the capital city.

“And we’ve already discussed with the Ports Authority to work together along these cruise liners, and they have given us some sort of schedule on the cruise liners’ arrival in Fiji. I note, especially in Suva, and I note that from our discussions, tourists prefer to come to Suva, as well as Lautoka, because of the landing.”

Boseiwaqa says that it is encouraging to see that most tourist prefer to come to the capital city so the council will be looking to build on this and maintain it.

The special administrator highlights that they will be carrying out various beautification projects around to the capital city in the coming months.
