Approximately 92,043 residents and 20 squatter settlements in Nasinu are set to take advantage of the conveniently located Nasinu – Laqere Market which opened yesterday
This new marketplace has been funded by Government to the tune of 7.2 Million Dollars and contains 459 vendor stalls, 12 kiosks and 3 mini-restaurants.
During the market, Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama said all across the country new markets and mini-markets are being built to bring vendors out of informal roadside stalls and into safe and functional marketplaces.
“With its new restaurants and proximity to fish and meat markets, this Market is where customers will come for a more convenient, one-stop marketing experience,” Prime Minister Bainimarama said.
“And – above all else – by supplying sellers with newfound security and sanitary facilities, we will lend a new measure of dignity to our vendors, all of whom play a vital role in putting food on the tables of Fijian families.”
