The recent establishment of the Wealth Fund, along with the proposed plans for an iTaukei Bank and a Land Development Company are set to significantly enhance the assistance provided to the landowners.

iTaukei Land Trust Board acting Chief Executive Solomoni Nata emphasizes that these new initiatives will enable landowners to engage in maximum income-generating activities.

Nata explains that the TLTB will depart from the traditional method of issuing leases to landowners and will now implement new strategies to help them utilize their land for optimal returns.
