Public consultations continue

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.
