PRIME Minister Voreqe Bainimarama today officiated at the groundbreaking ceremony  of a new shopping complex in Nukuloa, Ba.

This marks an economic boost for the rural community and the opportunities fostered between investors and traditional landowners.

Mr Bainimarama poured cement for Stage 1 of Nasura Investment, owned by Parmesh and Renu Chand, and for which construction is wholly supported by suppliers in Ba.

This first stage of development will house a modern supermarket, six smaller shops and space for banking ATM facilities.

Stage 2 will include a service station and all associated facilities, while Stage 3 is due to grow commercial activities in tourism for the area.

“I am pleased that Nasura Investments is working with tour operators and hoteliers in Nadi area to bring that about, because that is the way to get things done that are truly beneficial—by working together across sectors so that we understand our markets, understand our customers and understand what our partners and stakeholders need so that everyone can be successful,” Mr Bainimarama said.

The project compliments infrastructural and economic investments already made in Nukuloa by the Fijian Government.
