Local Government Minister, Premila Kumar says every town and city needs to develop a resilience plan or strategy.

Speaking at the 75th Anniversary Celebrations of Nadi Township, Kumar highlighted municipal Councils must go beyond the scope of their responsibilities and collaborate with members of the private sector and civil society if they are to genuinely transform our cities and towns.

Kumar adds the story of resilience is really one of cooperation; it involves all tiers of Government, business, and civil society cooperating for a single goal.
