Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama this morning officiated at the ground breaking ceremony for the new Laqere Market at Nasinu.
PM Bainimarama said the construction of the new market is part of Government’s economic game plan for Fiji that has already carried the country to a record eight straight years of economic growth which is projected to bring ten consecutive years of growing the Fijian economy.
“When we set out that game plan it wasn’t just for the few. No. Our work was, has been and will be to empower ordinary men and women,” PM Bainimarama said.
“Those small businesses, sole traders at the grassroots level who had long been left out of our national development.”
PM Bainimarama added Government’s investment towards such a project will impact and support future development.
The new market will serve as a modern and functional hub of economic activity in Nasinu, it will include stalls for 500 vendors, along with ample room for more extensions and upgrades in the future.
