MOU to set working relationship

The Consumer Council of Fiji and the Asia-Pacific Applied Economics Association signed a Memorandum of Understanding today to build a working relationship and jointly support and develop research activities that are mutually beneficial to both institutions.

The MOU will allow both institutions to undertake research that makes a difference to public policy.

Chief executive Seema Shandil said this was a significant achievement for both institutions and will further strengthen the research arms of the Council.

“As the leading consumer advocacy organization in Fiji, the Council is mandated to conduct research on issues affecting consumers and make submissions based on its findings to the Government and other enforcement bodies.”

“The MOU will allow the Council to polish its research capabilities that will ultimately help policy makers make informed decisions; in the interest of the consumers.”

She further stated that the MOU is the testament of the Council’s unification-focused approach of ensuring a fairer Fijian marketplace as well as APAEA’s commitment towards helping contribute to positive public policy changes in the future.
