Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum yesterday urged the Fiji bus companies to present a more united front at the Fiji Bus Operators Association's annual convention yesterday.
"It is imperative that when you have a bus industry run by private companies, that you have one voice," Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said at the association's annual convention at Novotel Convention Centre in Lami.
He said there was no doubt, differences between the companies who were members of the Fiji Bus Operators Association.
Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said leaders of the association needed to be responsive to the needs of its members and also allow changes for the betterment of the group.
"Dynamics and demographics change, for any organisation to be dynamic, you need to have change."
Mr Sayed-Khaiyum also encouraged bus operators to be courageous and visit the Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption if they had information regarding corrupt operation of other bus operators.
"Generally, there has been a culture of silence. You need to have the courage to come out and say these things. We will ensure any such grievances are dealt with independently and transparently".
FBOA president Richard Lal said the bus industry faced a lot of challenges in the transport environment and urged the Land Transport Authority and the government to address the issues faced by the industry.
