HE is back.

The new Ministry of Waterways Minister, Dr Mahendra Reddy was welcomed at his office at Toorak, Suva, yesterday.

Speaking at the welcoming ceremony, Dr Reddy said he was excited about his new role and looked forward to working with the communities in the near future.

"The new Ministry of Waterways is an important ministry that will look at dealing with waterways issues in the country," Dr Reddy said.

"This provides me with an opportunity to work with you all and I look forward to addressing the issue. Waterways are an issue we face a lot in the country and the new ministry will be strongly engaged with communities that go through these problems."

Dr Reddy said the ministry would also be focusing on drafting up plans, policies and frameworks about the work the ministry needed to do before engaging fully with the communities.

"We will work jointly with the communities in doing research to further boost our capacity in dealing with issues like waterways," he said.
