Nai Lalakai Online background
FIJI'S iTaukei language newspaper Nai Lalakai went online on March 2nd, 2012, as it celebrated its 50th anniversary. Nai Lalakai editor Anare Ravula said this was a major milestone being the first iTaukei newspaper in the world to go online.
"This will be a great advantage for locals living overseas, particularly our readers who are soldiers and Fijians serving in the British Army," Mr Ravula said.
"I am delighted with it, it's a major project and it is a major achievement for the newspaper and greater service to our readers offshore," The Fiji Times publisher Hank Arts said. "I think the people will love it," he said.
The Fiji Times editor-in-chief Fred Wesley voiced similar sentiments and added uploading the vernacular newspaper online was part of The Fiji Times' service to its readers.
"We hope this site will assist our readers in terms of helping them understand and value the iTaukei language, culture and traditions," Mr Wesley said.
