IN an attempt to improve their working processes and procedures, the Fiji Revenue and Customs Authority (FRCA) met with experts in Singapore last week.
FRCA chief executive Jitoko Tikolevu, who was accompanied by the FRCA chairman Ajith Kodagoda, discussed ways in which Fiji could learn from Singapore.
In a statement released by FRCA late last week, they said Singapore had one of the most, if not the most efficient, customs authorities in the world.
"FRCA is looking at reforming and improving processes and procedures at our ports, which should in turn greatly improve the country's export and import business," the statement read.
In explaining the purpose of their visit, Mr Kodagoda said Fiji had much to learn from Singapore in this field.
"The purpose of the visit was to extensively discuss the learning from Singapore on how to improve the services to business houses and visitors to the country," Mr Kodagoda said.
"FRCA is looking at the possibility of introducing similar incentives to assist business houses who use Fiji as an export hub to the region."
