The province of Bua is blessed with rich natural resources both in the ocean and on land. Although there have been reports in the media highlighting the Province as being one of the poorest in the country, the people of Bua have been able to build a life for themselves from the wealth of natural resources available to them.
In the past years, development in the province of Bua has been progressing, albeit at a very slow rate. However, due to the recent efforts by the Government of Fiji to curb the rural to urban drift from Vanua Levu to Viti Levu through its look North Policy, development has begun to move at a faster rate.
