Fiji will start daylight savings at 2 am on Sunday 21st October 2012 and end at 3 am on Sunday 20th January 2013.

Minister for Labour, Industrial Relations and Employment Jone Usamate today confirmed this in a cabinet statement today.

This decision by cabinet means that the nation will switch clocks forward  by one hour from 2am to 3am normal time on Sunday 21st October 2012.  Daylight savings will end before school resumes in January 2013.

Usamate encourages all Fijians as well as visitors to Fiji to take advantage of the daylight savings and added that, in terms of personal and family time, daylight savings allows employers and workers to spend quality daylight time with families.

Members of the public are advised to move their clocks forward one hour ahead from 2am to 3am on Sunday 21st October 2012.
