SYDNEY, Australia (ABC News Online, Oct. 2) - Fiji's government is looking for investors for what is expected to be the biggest infrastructure project in the region in the coming year.

A senior government official says a cost-benefit analysis of the project has been completed and the government is searching for funds among its financiers and donors.

The official says the Pacific village, estimated at US$19 million, is expected to be included in the Prime Minister Laisenia Qarase's 2004 Budget.
