GOOD news for forest stakeholders as the Ministry of Forests revealed this morning its intention to make its services accessible online by July this year.

Permanent Secretary for the ministry Pene Baleinabuli said the initiative would help ease the turn back time for those applying for the ministry’s licensing services.

“I want us to be responsive to the people of Fiji. They will know the timelines and where license has to go to for approval”.

He said the online service will only take hours which is a far cry from the long waiting time their customers currently faced.

Mr Baleinabuli has assured the attendees that a complain portal would be made so that he could be made aware of what was happening in the field.
