If there is anything in our proposed development that is harmful to the environment, we will not go ahead with it.

This was revealed by a spokesperson for the $600 million Fiji Tian Lun Square project in Nasese.

The spokesperson also said they would be guided by their environment consultant.

“Nothing has been finalised in terms of the mangrove issue but we remain 100 per cent committed towards the project,” the spokesperson said.

“At the moment, we are working through our environment consultant Dr Paulo Vanualailai, to get the necessary approvals we need.

“I can assure you that anything that deals with the environment, we will have the necessary approvals and documentation first. “If there is a better way to proceed with the development, we will do it.”

The spokesperson said the project would provide employment for Fijians but could not provide specific information as a lot of the progress of the development would hinge on their obtaining the necessary approvals first.
