Arts Village expects a boom
The Arts Village at Pacific Harbour, close to Suva, expects to enjoy a resurgence in business as a result of several capital projects about to open by the end of this month. The Village was formerly a cultural centre before Australian businessman Eric Roberts bought the property two years ago and renovated the centre as a tourist attraction. The Arts Village dance group performs traditional games, meke and enactment of tribal wars daily for tourists and guests. Sometimes they perform twice a day if there are a lot of tourists. Other activities on display include pottery making, plaiting of mats and other traditional gifts made from pandanus.
