GOVERNMENT plans to allocate resources for sustained maintenance and construction of new water treatment plants in the country.

This was revealed by the Prime Minister, Voreqe Bainimarama, during his State visit in Sydney, Australia this week.

He said this would also help provide clean and safe drinking water to all Fijians.

The plant is rated as one of the high-quality drinking water suppliers in Sydney, producing an average of 250 million litres per day of drinking water for up to 1.5 million people.

The delegation also visited the Clean Away Resource Recovery Facility in Sydney where Mr Bainimarama was briefed on the waste manufacturing processes and sustainable development practices of the facility.

Head of the Office of the Pacific in the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Ewen McDonald and Australian High Commissioner to Fiji John Feakes officially received Mr Bainimarama and his delegation.
