The developers of a planned casino on Fiji's Denarau Island have been given another week's extension to their deadline.

The 100 Sands Casino now has until next week to begin construction of the 155 million US dollar casino after deciding to change the site's location.

But FBC News reports the Attorney General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, as saying if the developers fail to meet this new deadline, they are likely to lose their construction licence.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum says the government is keen to see the project take shape.
