2018/19 Budget: 20 cents levy for plastic bags

LEVY on plastic bags has been increased to 20 cents.

In his 2018-2019 National Budget address, Minister for Economy Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said while Government has witnessed a reduction in the use of plastic bags, they could do better by increasing the levy.

“We are working towards a complete ban on plastic bags in Fiji by the year 2020,” he said.

“This will give everybody two years to phase out the use of plastics.”
