McDonalds restaurant has opened in Lautoka.
Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says the decision to open this restaurant by a global franchise, was made because Lautoka’s growth has been recognised as sustainable and continuing.
Bainimarama noted that government is providing close to 3 million dollars to upgrade Churchill Park including an all-weather track and to commence ground works for the first public swimming pool.
He adds that this is addition to the private sector investments with a new City building to house modern shopping facilities and new cinemas expected to open soon along with a new 144 roomed hotel and modern conference facilities being built.
With the McDonalds opening, 70 new staff will be employed, many of whom are young adults and first time employees.
These Fijians will not only receive full and part-time employment, they will also undergo intensive training and learn valuable skills in the service industry.
$4 million has been spent developing McDonalds in Lautoka with the latest modern designs and full Wi-Fi capabilities.
