Close to 200 Fijians will be employed during the development of Asco Motors’ $15 million car dealership premises at the new Legalega Industrial Subdivision in Nadi.

Asco Motors outgoing CEO Craig Sims explained the construction phase of the project would result in the employment of more than 100 construction workers.

“As you can imagine, there will be a large number of Fijians from the construction industry being involved in this project and we hope to boost livelihoods in that capacity,” he said.

“Once the construction phase is over, we will be employing about 100 people to work at the dealership once it opens.”

The $15 million project was commissioned by Minister for Economy Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum who commended the car dealership company for paving the way for businesses to continue with their investments.

He said the Legalega Industrial Subdivision was also a prime location for large businesses and he was looking forward to more companies taking advantage of the new area.

The Attorney-General added businesses should continue to invest in their future despite the lull in economic activity in the country.
