Public consultations continue

July 18, 2015 5:02 am

Public consultation on the National Development Plan continues attracting small groups from various communities today.

One such gathering was at Bhawani Dayal High School in Nakasi, Nausori.

Permanent Secretary for National Planning Filimoni Waqabaca says the five year plan is much more comprehensive and detailed and will articulate what government intends to do.

“Following the consultation the government will then put together these issues or feedbacks that are received from members of the public then it will begin to draw the development plan unlike before we do it and then we send it to them now we consult first and then we draft a plan which hopefully will be used by government that comes into power in order to address the concerns raise by members of the public.”

The twenty year plan will be a much broader vision or a road map on the type of Fiji we would like to see by 2035.

Views and suggestions from Non Government Organisation and the business sectors will be heard from next month.

The Hon. Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation Rosy Sofia Akbar will lead consultations with Fijians living in Namosi later this week.

The recent public consultations led by the Minister continue to gain momentum with the Ministry recording a significant turnout by the public.

Just in its third week, the Ministry has covered consultations in Labasa, Navua and Naitasiri.

The latest consultations, which will take place this Friday, will provide the Minister an opportunity to look at the success of Government’s welfare and women projects in the province.

In preparation for this latest round of consultations, the Minister says a schedule is currently being developed for future consultations to be held across the country.

Akbar says these consultations will go on until they are able to reach out to all the communities in Fiji.
