Participate in change

THE modernisation of outdated laws and reforms being undertaken by the government are designed to not only facilitate progress for the country but also to assist various industries like tourism.

This was the message from the Attorney-General and Minister for Tourism Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum to industry stakeholders at the unveiling of Tourism Fiji's brand new global advertising campaign at the Sheraton Fiji Resort in Nadi last Friday.

"We all must participate in the reforms and modernisations that are taking place in Fiji," he said.

"Things like the Domestic Violence Decree are also critical to the tourism industry because if your staff are being bashed up the night before, how do you expect them to be productive the next day." Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said infrastructure upgrades in progress in the country were not only for the benefit of visitors but also for local workers in all industries. "Government is going to invest quite heavily in roads, it's already investing in water and electricity," he said.
