A $9.5 million rural electrification project expected to benefit more than 20,000 Fijians is being considered by the Abu Dhabi Development Fund

Minister for Foreign Affairs Ratu Inoke Kubuabola met with officials from the fund yesterday about the project which will cover the mainland of Viti Levu and Vanua Levu where the potential for grid connected rural electrification exists.

“More than 200 communities (6000 households or more than 20,000 people) stand to benefit from the above projects,” said Kubuabola.

He said electricity would enhance the opportunities for rural people to participate productively in the development of their own households.
