Fiji Prime Minister and landholders have successful meeting

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama today had a successful meeting with landowners from Tikina Namosi (Province of Namosi) and Tikina Waidina (Province of Naitasiri), who presented their views on the current exploration being carried out by Namosi Joint Venture (NJV) in respect to the proposed mining operations.

The Prime Minister, together with officials from the Ministries of Environment, Lands and Provincial Development, along with the iTaukei Land Trust Board, presented the legal and administrative issues in relations to the NJV operations.

The Prime Minister highlighted that the current operations of NJV are based on a prospective license, and that before any decision is made to grant the company a mining license, an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) will need to be completed.

Following an exchange of views between all parties and a full airing of concerns, it has been agreed that the landowners, the Prime Minister and relevant officials, and NJV will meet again on Tuesday, January 31 to address any and all outstanding issues and misinformation.
