Remove VAT on fuel, says Chaudhry The Government must remove the 15 per cent import VAT on fuel to give urgent relief to the people from escalating prices, says Fiji Labour Party Leader Mahendra Chaudhry.

Reacting to the newly announced fuel prices, Chaudhry said the current monthly increases on fuel prices would have a drastic impact on the entire economy, not just motorists, creating instability in the market.

He said there is a major outcry out there at the increases effective today - from lorry drivers carting cane, bus and taxi operators, mini bus and carrier operators and others.

“These increases will have a spiralling effect on the entire economy, pushing up the cost of goods and services at a time when living costs are already unsustainable,” he said.

“Government needs to take urgent action to counter the price increase and I suggest removing the 15 per cent import VAT as a first step.”

“It is already levying a 46c per litre Customs Duty on motor spirits and 20c per litre on diesel. It can easily forgo the VAT on fuel as an immediate measure until the situation returns to normal," he added.
