photo: avarua residents such as tourism minister piho rua sheltered in the shell of paulina’s restaurant soon after dawn broke on a fading cyclone meena. doubts are increasing about rua’s industry leadership.

Tourism minister Piho Rua was seen this afternoon, arms akimbo, in the old marine sources building.
Hunting out to sea, talking with an official.
His reappearance on the Avarua waterfront is a reminder the country’s number one particular market might have a problem.
“He kept altering the subject all the time,” reports one enterprise man right after a meeting with Rua. He’s not the only one particular.
Rua’s part in the industry has been discussed around
as Rarotonga shakes off cyclone tensions and eases back into typical routines, including meetings of the chamber of commerce.
Rua’s role was discussed briefly at Monday’s specific meeting of the national Chamber of Commerce.
Very briefly.

Who is the minister?

“Who is the minister?” asks importer Brian Baudinet at the open meeting.
About 65 individuals swapped smiles. This soon after all is an market that survives hurricane ministers like Dr. Joe Williams. And genuine hurricanes, 5 of them. In a row.
Rua may possibly or may not be a comparable. He is the very first new MP for Rakahanga in 30 years, replacing long-time political lion of the north, Dr Pupuke Robati. Rua is a former policeman and prison superintendent with more than two decades of knowledge questioning criminal suspects. Rua rose to the rank of chief inspector, where he was not shy of wielding authority.
His public profile dimmed when he went into business with former bond manager and convicted thief, Michael Benns. Then dived following he became the island’s greatest pirate.
Given previous knowledge with ministers like Williams, enterprise individuals are not too worried about Rua’s background. No, the dilemma is, they are just plain confused by Rua’s strategy to the market.

He talks about this, that

“He talks about undertaking this, doing that,” mentioned the enterprise man, who commented on condition of not being quoted.
1 factor that Rua has talked about publicly to the media is knocking down the wharf front restaurant, Paulina’s, and the old Marine Sources building.
In it’s location, the tourism minister wants to develop an open park capable of holding concerts with a huge, transportable, stage at water’s edge.
“Light it up at evening,” he tells avaiki nius agency, constructing an image of hundreds of individuals along the waterfront, watching performing arts.
Visionary stuff, say supporters.
Specially although the reality in front of him at the time was the aftermath of cyclone Meena. Rubble strewn across the road, the new justice ministry fence smashed more than.
“Good!” he says. “I hate that fence.”
Most people would agree with him, and think similarly about the distinctly Chinese flavour of the new justice creating.

Very good! I hate that fence

Concerns remain.
What, for instance, about the regional businesses at the wharf?
“Eah!” says Rua dismissively, flicking his hand.
As several as ten men and women worked in 1 of the buildings, featuring a tiny scale, neighborhood style restaurant, and an attached tattoo venue, specialising in standard styles. A toilet block was smashed in by Meena.
All facing uncertain future.
Soon after Meena, Cook Islands Investment Corporation chief executive Tarita Hutchinson told avaiki nius agency the fate of the buildings rests with the board of the CIIC.
At that stage, the board had but to meet.
Since then, there have been conflicting stories about what will take place to the Avarua waterfront.
And that’s without going into the rumours flying about about Trader Jack’s, only half of them place out by the owner of the country’s ideal-identified restaurant himself.
As an alternative of allaying nerves in the country’s engine space, nonetheless, minister Rua was off shocking the arts market.

Sacking Williams

Performing and visual arts were estimated in 2001 as being worth million to the country, according to a report by Arama and Associates.
Sacking the head of the Ministry of Cultural Development, Sonny Williams, was yet another confirmation, stated critics, that Rua is a loose cannon.
Several feel this is the last type of factor the sector, or the country, requirements when trying to recover from 5 cyclones.
