Hands off approach

Avinesh Gopal
Saturday, July 05, 2014

THE Social Democratic Liberal Party will have a "hands off" attitude towards the business community if it forms the next government.

While speaking to some business people in Suva on Thursday night, SODELPA candidate Nirmal Singh said the party would not tell them how to run their business.

"We will enact legislation in consultations with you and we will reflect your needs and wishes," Mr Singh said.

"Legislation that controls and discourages every aspect of running your business will either be streamlined or abolished.

"We are not business people and we are not going to dictate how a businessman runs a business.

"Our role is to facilitate and provide the environment to enable you to run your business."

Mr Singh said there was a need to create a level playing field and establish a conducive environment to create and make wealth.
