Lau and Kadavu had been identified as two of the hardest-hit regions after Tropical Cyclone Harold.

There is also presently a number of efforts both from Central Emergency Response Fund projects and longer-term development programs that exist in both these regions.

During their visit to Lau, the delegation will visit the islands of Moala, Totoya, Matuku, Ono-I-Lau, and Vatoa where they will be meeting with Fijians and also commissioning several projects.
