The Fijian Government has taken bold steps to implement reforms that will make doing business in Fiji much easier.
Minister for Industry, Trade, Tourism, Housing and Community Development Hon. Premila Kumar while addressing the members of Fiji- Australia Business Council this evening says the Government has been working with the World Bank Group and Singapore Cooperation Enterprise to implement reforms under digitalFIJI.
“bizFiji portal launched mid last year, has removed impediments and is a one-stop-shop for an entrepreneur. By just making information available on a single platform, we have been able to reduce time by up to 40%. Businesses do not need to run from pillar to post to get simple information to start a business,” Minister Kumar said.
One of the major steps, Minister Kumar says, is that the business licensing procedure now comprises only of two processes and a license is issued within 48 hours.
