The leadership at the helm of Suva Retailers Association has changed after 30 years.

Atish Lala, the director of Lala’s Store Menswear, has been elected the new president of the association following its annual general meeting this week.

Mr Lala replaced Himmat Lodhia who had served as the association president for three decades.

The plan now for the Suva Retailers Association is to facilitate the move towards a brighter and more modern image of the association.

Mr Lala said the association has been maintaining a low profile over the years due to various reasons.

Therefore people may not be aware about Suva Retailers Association and what it does but with the election of the new government, things are going to change, for the better.

“What we intend to do is to work with the Government, the Fiji Police Force and  Suva City Council, to take progressive steps to enhance the Suva City retail business environment ” he said.

“We have a new board of executives and we will be having our first meeting in about two weeks.

“This meeting will be the first step to move in the positive direction. We will open a calendar for the year and schedule forums and feedback from the Suva retailers.”

Mr Lala said they are not only looking at the improvement of the Suva retailers but also how the association can work with the Suva City Council to do improvements around the town.

Currently the association has 70 members but Mr Lala says he is confident that these numbers are going to increase significantly.
