Attorney-General and Minister for Anti-Corruption Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, and his team will be in Rakiraki tomorrow to carry out public consultations on the transport industry.
The consultation will allow the public to provide feedback, views and concerns on the issuance and renewal of taxi licences, taxi base permits, carrier licences, carrier base permits, issuance and renewal of omnibus licences, servicing of routes by omnibuses,
drivers licences, minibus licences, fares, bases and permits, processing of licences and permits.
This is part of the Bainimarama Government’s objective to constantly modernise and streamline rules, regulations and processes and to ensure continuing transparency.
Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said some very useful comments had been forthcoming in other consultations he had in Nadi, Lautoka, Sigatoka, Nasinu and Nausori.
These consultations, he said, was a result of the increasing number of complaints that had been received by his office and other ministries regarding the non-transparent manner in which things have happened in the transport sector in the past.
He said since the Anti-Corruption Ministry was undertaking this process, it also gave people the chance to speak out without any fear of victimisation.
“This is the chance for people to speak out freely,” Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said.
The team will be at Shiu Raj Building, Rakiraki, from 9.30am.
