A $3.5 million factory is being built in Nadi to make electronic diesel pumps.

The factory is expected to initially employ 12 local graduate technicians.

Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama said in an issued statement to attendees at the Dual Citizenship seminars in Sydney that this was a direct result of Fiji’s dual citizenship initiative.

Commodore Bainimarama said a perfect example of our diaspora making a significant positive impact through the dual citizenship initiative, is a one Dev Mishra who is at present constructing an F$3.5m diesel factory in Nadi.

He said the aim of the plant is to produce electronic diesel fuel pumps using state-of-the-art technology.

He added that after its introduction in 2009, the initiative had reaped benefits.

“The dual citizenship initiative was introduced in 2009 and last year alone the Department of Immigration processed over 800 applications from our Fiji diaspora residing all over the world,” said Bainimarama.
