“The Northern Division is witnessing a buildup of developments as a result of the Look North Policy”.
These were the sentiments echoed by Mr. Sitiveni Raturala, the Principal Administrative Officer at the Strategic Framework for Change Coordinating Office (SFCCO) – Office of the Prime Minister (OPM).
“The construction of new roads, installation of new power grid in Seaqaqa, expansion of economic activities through the overall infrastructure development in the Northern Division is an indication that the Look North Policy is taking effect,” said Mr. Raturala.
Mr. Raturala was part of the four teams that conducted public relations consultations awareness in three provinces, namely Cakaudrove, Bua and Macuata for the past four weeks.
The PR Officers, Mr. Kisoko Cagituevei, Mr. Epeli Vuase and Mr. George Katonivualiku were part of the teams that distributed constitution booklets to villagers and rural dwellers during their PR sessions.
The PR Officers also took the opportunity to thank them for their hard work and support towards Government’s intent and encouraged them to take part in this election process.
Mr. Raturala said that government is taking a proactive role in building sustainable livelihoods for people, therefore, with improved access comes a greater responsibility on the part of the people on how best they can contribute positively to development.
