Mr Boseiwaqa said Mrs Vuniwaqa was briefed about the Department’s vision and the current projects they were working on.

“I must admit she was very happy with her briefing,” Mr Boseiwaqa said.

Mr Boseiwaqa said changes had to be made to the current land legislations.

The Lands Department is responsible for the administration and oversight of all developments on State Land in Fiji under the State Lands Act, Cap 132.

As the principal survey authority in Fiji under the Surveyors Act Cap 260, it is responsible for the regulation of all land surveys undertaken in Fiji by registered surveyors.

It also develops, provides and maintains the network of survey controls nation wide. A major and growing role is that of land information and the department produces and updates all national maps of Fiji.

The Valuation Division of the Department undertakes all negotiations and acquisitions of land for public purposes including assessments of rentals.

Mr Boseiwaqa said they were now working on the draft of the Valuation Act, as currently the Ministry had nothing on this particular subject.
