The Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission (FCCC) and the Fiji Commerce and Employers Federation (FCEF) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on August 2, 2018, in efforts to promote and protect consumers as well as the commerce and industry.

The MOU was signed by the FCCC chief executive officer Joel Abraham and the FCEF president Sandeep Chauhan at the Employers Hub.

During the signing of the MoU, CEO FCCC, Mr Abraham said: “The MOU is the first Public Private Partnership of any kind to be formulated and signed by the FCCC.

“This will establish the relationship between the two organisations and allow for members of FCEF to access training and information sessions organised by FCCC and vice versa,” Mr Abraham said.

Mr Abraham said the MoU will further allow FCCC to work through the networks of FCEF to help reach out to members.

“In this way, they will undertake a collaborative and coordinated approach, reaching out to the stakeholders in a timely manner,” Mr Abraham said.

The FCEF President Mr Sandeep Chauhan in his remarks mentioned: “The MOU would allow for FCCC to work with FCEF members in transitioning and helping set up their business to comply with the laws in place, especially for those that weren’t and didn’t know the terms of compliance”.

He added that the MOU would be beneficial for both organisations as it would allow businesses to better understand and cooperate with the FCCC.

The two organisations recognise that the MOU would allow them to effectively discharge and carry out their duties through, information sharing, collaboration towards accessing grants and also maximise the potential for use of resources to facilitate projects that will benefit both, the commerce and the private sector.
