MARKET access is still a problem for Rabi islanders.

Rabi Island Council chairman Paula Vanualailai said even though a lot of assistance had been given to islanders, there was room for improvement.

"The Government has been assisting the islanders through development programs, through its roadmap projects like the construction of the jetty but we need the islanders to take ownership and participate in self-help projects," he said during the Prime Minister's visit to Rabi on Tuesday.

According to the Information Ministry, Mr Vanualailai said government departments had ongoing projects on the island which needed regular follow-ups.

He said the council had done much for the islanders, especially by helping them with transportation.

"We have assisted them in various ways and we're thankful to the Government for development programs through the roadmap. Now we have several projects like seaweed farming and other sea resources but we need more."

He said the visit by the PM was fruitful.
