The Gov­ern­ment is work­ing to­wards a new era of ser­vice de­liv­ery, through the Gov­ern­ment Dig­i­tal Trans­for­ma­tions.

This was the as­sur­ance made by Min­is­ter for In­dus­try, Trade and Tourism Premila Ku­mar while speak­ing at the Fiji Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try (FCCI) Busi­ness Sum­mit, new logo and web­site launch at Suva’s Grand Pa­cific Ho­tel yes­ter­day. Mrs Ku­mar said that with the chang­ing life­styles and busi­ness en­vi­ron­ment, there was a need for things to be done faster and much eas­ier.

She said the busi­ness com­mu­nity should have easy ac­cess and be fully aware of their com­pli­ance and reg­u­la­tory re­quire­ments such as trade across bor­ders, tax obli­ga­tions and any mod­i­fi­ca­tions to reg­u­la­tions.

“We are cog­nisant of this and agen­cies are striv­ing to make their pro­cesses and pro­ce­dures as clear and sim­ple as pos­si­ble,” Mrs Ku­mar said. “Pro­vid­ing in­put on cur­rent com­pli­ance and reg­u­la­tion mat­ters from the prac­ti­cal stand­point of busi­ness, is part of your func­tion too.”

She also ac­knowl­edged that there is room for im­prove­ment while also as­sur­ing that her Min­istry is open to work­ing to­gether to in­cor­po­rate im­prove­ments when and where needed.

“The larger busi­nesses need to lend sup­port to the mi­cro, small and medium en­ter­prises and young en­trepreneur­s.

“The pri­vate sec­tor needs to work with the Gov­ern­ment ma­chin­ery in our ef­forts to im­prove busi­ness pro­cesses.

“We’re do­ing this for the pros­per­ity of the pri­vate sec­tor.”

Mrs Ku­mar added that the vi­sion for a mod­ern and in­clu­sive econ­omy is em­bed­ded in the Na­tional De­vel­op­ment Plan.

This, she said, maps the way for­ward for Fiji to re­alise its full po­ten­tial.

New logo and web­site

While launch­ing the new logo and web­site, Mrs Ku­mar said the new brand­ing presents a mod­ern and pro­gres­sive look to the Fiji Cham­ber as the peak body of all cham­bers around Fiji and the li­ai­son be­tween pri­vate sec­tor busi­nesses and Gov­ern­ment as pol­icy mak­ers.
