Update: 12:00PM THE government will work with businesses to ensure that consumers benefit from duty concessions, says Ministry of Finance permanent secretary Filimone Waqabaca.

Mr Waqabaca made the comment following the signing of an agreement on information sharing between the Fiji Commerce Commission and Fiji Revenue and Customs Authority in Suva.

In a statement, he said the agreement would assist the established taskforce to monitor the price of goods, which had received government concessions.

The taskforce, which comprises the permanent secretaries of the Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Industry and Trade, and the CEOs of the Fiji Commerce Commission and FRCA, was announced during the 2014 National Budget.
