Minister for Industry, Trade and Tourism, Lands and Mineral Resources Hon. Faiyaz Siddiq Koya issued 43 Approval Notices to Lease for people residing in Bangladesh Settlement, Tavua in Rakiraki today.
Koya said this is a demonstration of the Fijian Government’s commitment to fostering an environment for sustainable and inclusive economic growth.
“The issuance of leases would help settlers’ security of tenure, access to infrastructure, improved living standards and access to lending institutions.”
Koya assured people present at the event that the Fijian Government would continue to support those in need of assistance.
The ministry would continue the same modus operandi with respect to all the informal settlements being regularized throughout the country.
