The Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says they will soon meet with representatives from the Tikina Namosi Landowners Committee and Namosi Joint Venture to discuss on steps to be undertaken in the proposed mining project at Waisoi.
TNLC spokersperson Saviriano Nariva had earlier told FBC News that more than 92 per cent of the people disagree with the project.
However, Bainimarama says all social issues concerning landowners will be
handled by a taskforce.
“The mining project is currently at the exploration stage. The environmental and social issues concerning landowners earlier this year has been addressed by a taskforce. The rehabilitation action plan which I had approved has paved a way forward in addressing other issues. After the successful completion of the rehabilitation action plan, the government, NJV and landowners will meet to decide the next step.”
NJV says they look forward to engaging with stakeholders to discuss concerns on the proposed project.
