The Ministry of Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation now has a boat in Levuka that will serve the Lomaiviti Group.
Minister, Mereseini Vuniwaqa says this is important for their Ministry as most of the people in the maritime islands do not get their services.
“As you know with government’s aim in decentralizing government’s services and taking it to rural communities is the main aim of that particular boat given the geographical layout of the Lomaiviti group that was very important in realizing that aim.”
Vuniwaqa says the boat will be based in Levuka and it costs around forty-eight thousand dollars.
