FCCC to work with various Ministers

The Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission looks forward to working together with the various Ministers to ensure that fair trade, consumer rights protection, and the issuance of authorisations and approvals by way of licenses for the provision of goods and services are upheld in the nation.

FCCC chief executive Joel Abraham said they welcome the statement of the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for External Trade, Cooperatives, and SMEs, Manoa Kamikamica, that Fijians should expect consistency in policies and that collaboration and consultation will be conducted before any policy change or taxation is introduced.

“This approach allows for transparency and accountability in the policy-making process.

These policies directly affect all Fijians – who have the right to be informed about the decisions that will or will not affect their pockets,” said Abraham.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance, Professor Biman Prasad, has also stressed that the Ministry of Finance will hold consultations and dialogues with the business community and other stakeholders in the country.

Prasad says there is no need to panic as they will work to ensure that the interest of every Fijian is well looked after.

He adds that he believes in the philosophy of working together and consultation.

Abraham stated that FCCC is an independent regulator and that they are looking forward to working with the new Government to ensure consumer rights are protected and markets remain sustainable.

“Our goals have always been to promote the interests of consumers, effective and efficient development of industry, trade and commerce, effective competition in industry, trade or commerce, and ensure equitable returns for businesses with fair and reasonable prices charged in accordance with section 2(1) of the FCCC Act 2010.”
