Survivor Series to inject F$6 million into community

Popular TV Series, Survivor, will inject F$6 million direct into the community by creating at least 230 jobs and hosting 250-production crew at Vunivutu in the interior of Labasa.

Government said welcomed the production team saying that the "Look North Policy" of Government was slowly taking shape and Vanua Levu will receive international recognition through the country's expanding movie industry.

Government said income would be generated through lease money, employment and purchase of goods and services including local produce.

It is expected that when the Fiji Survivor program goes on air, the country will attract invaluable international publicity, particularly for tourism.

Up to 230 local people are employed in administrative and office work, catering, security and land clearance. These workers will expect to earn a total of approximately half a million dollars in wages over 3 months.

Landowners will receive significant income from the temporary leasing of their land with infrastructure build (including a boat landing at Wainikoro, Labasa) to remain for use by locals after the production.

Government said that 7 overseas productions were completed in the country so far. This is expected to rise to 13 by the end of the year. It estimates that more than F$150 million worth of economic activity was created through these projects.
