Members of the public had the opportunity to raise queries and concerns on land development in the country at a public consultation organised in Suva last Saturday.

The meeting was led by the Minister for Lands and Mineral Resources, Mereseini Vuniwaqa, who was joined by her Permanent Secretary, Tevita Boseiwaqa and ministry staff.

Issues raised touched on State Land, Land Bank, foreshore and mining development.

“We want to solve these issues so that we are able to create a close working group with landowners and the ministry, so there is better service and faster turnaround time,” Mrs Vuniwaqa said.

“We hope that through this consultation, the ministry will be able to be more strategic in their systems and processes to improve our service delivery to the public.”

She stressed her ministry would continue to strive towards ensuring that systems and processes are streamlined to provide efficient and consistent services to Fijians.

Mr Boseiwaqa also commended the public for participating in the meeting which was held at Albert Park.

“This is the platform the ministry has identified to meet face to face with members of the public and deal firsthand with land issues,” Mr Boseiwaqa said.

“We need to work together to ensure that all procedures are being followed and at the end of the day customers are satisfied.”

The ministry recently held similar consultations in other parts of the country.
