TAXIdrivers in the Western Division have been hit hard after they were stopped from servicing people working on Denarau, says Fiji Taxi Association president Mohammed Hafiz.

This was one of the issues discussed at the association's first board meeting in Nadi yesterday.

"This is a question of the livelihood of our members and we will be making appointments with the responsible minister and Land Transport Authority to solve this issue," Mr Hafiz said.

He said the meeting discussed issues that concerned not only drivers in the Western Division but the country as a whole.

"One of the major issues was regarding the illegal operators because we have noticed that many private vehicle drivers still conduct business.

"This affects our business and we would like authorities to take strict action against such operators."

Mr Hafiz said the branch division was another serious matter. "We would like them to operate under the Association as a united front. We have also discussed our future plans and hope to get our branches fully functional."
