Prime Minister Hon. Voreqe Bainimarama today commissioned the Natadradave water project in Dawasamu, Tailevu.

The Prime Minister highlighted that the Fijian government has opened several water projects in the recent weeks throughout the country and believes that access to clean water is fundamental to the future development and the prosperity of Fijian people.

“And because of that commitment, we’ve opened new taps, just like this one, along with massive new water infrastructure projects all across Fiji over the past decade.”

“Under my leadership, we’ve brought the immeasurable benefits of clean drinking water to over 150,000 Fijians in rural communities…every Fijian deserves to live with the security and happiness that only clean water can provide – water that can used for drinking, cooking, washing and keeping ourselves clean.”

The Prime Minister also said that tens and thousands in rural pockets of Fiji know the feeling of joy and security brought by seeing clean water when they open the tap.

“No family should wake up wondering where the water they need will come from. No family should be forced to make a long, arduous journey in times of drought. And every family should know that clean water is nearby, whenever they need it, and in whatever quantities they require. And I will not rest until that is the reality for every Fijian,” said the Prime Minister.
