Update: 1:26PM THE work undertaken by the Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission (FCCC) to actively enforce legislation and institute fines for businesses that break the rules had resulted in more businesses becoming compliant and achieving a fairer market for Fiji.
Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama highlighted this while officiating at the rebranding and launch of the FCCC’s new five-year strategic plan yesterday.
“The Commission has been tasked with a renewed focus on ensuring that as our economy continues to grow, markets are competitive, forward-thinking regulations are justified and consumers’ interests are protected,” Mr Bainimarama said.
“They work with key agencies such as Fiji Revenue and Customs Services, the Reserve Bank of Fiji, and the Financial Intelligence Unit to carry out their duties, ensuring that every Fijian benefit from a healthy and well-regulated market,” he said.
FCCC, formerly known as the Prices and Incomes Board and later the Fiji Commerce Commission, was established more than 40 years ago to safeguard the interests of consumers and create a fair and competitive market for businesses.
