PLANS are in the pipeline to upgrade the island of Rabi in an effort to improve the livelihoods of its people.
Acting commissioner Northern Alipate Bolalevu said a team of government officials visited the island last week to hold talks with the islanders and identify ways to address their plight.
"We are looking at ways on how we can help these islanders improve their living standards. The focus is on the agriculture and fisheries sector since the island has a very rich and diverse natural resources," he said.
"Government has also completed development projects such as the jetty and this is a boost to the economy of Rabi. We need the islanders to make good use of these projects for their own benefit."
