Pacific Building Solutions has been awarded the contract to begin the rebuilding of the Vale ni Bose (Great Council of Chiefs Meeting Hall), that was completely destroyed in a fire in 2019.
Minister for iTaukei Affairs, Ifereimi Vasu confirmed this while highlighting his Ministry’s achievements of 2023 in a video posted on the Fiji Government social media page.
Vasu said works are to begin this month and expected to be completed in January 2025.
He said the Ministry of i-Taukei Affairs is currently finalising administrative works before the work is handed over to PBS.
In 2023, Vasu said an insurance claim of $6.5 million was paid out to i-Taukei Trust Fund Board for this project.
He said this was a good deal, compared to the price policy that the board negotiated.
