The Minister for Industry, Trade and Tourism, Faiyaz Siddiq Koya, has used Shreedhar Motors and the Maharaj family as an example of the commitment expected from all Fijians.

Mr Koya acknowledged the recent investment history of over $10 million by the company providing employment to 120 Fijians in their five showrooms around the country.

“I have been informed that the company is in the planning stages of investing into another state of the art showroom similar to this complex,” he said.

His positive words came as the new 2016 Ford Ranger XLT was launched at the Shreedhar Motors showroom in Vatuwaqa last night.

“Today’s launch is significant as it is an indication of the progress that the motor vehicle industry has made in Fiji,” he said.

“The 2016 Ford Ranger XLT is a new ‘high-efficiency’ model, which makes it the most efficient engine in the Ranger catalogue, in fact, 22 per cent more efficient that the outgoing model.

“This augurs well with the Fijian Government initiatives of encouraging more fuel efficient vehicles that will contribute towards reducing fuel consumption. Newer model vehicles also require better quality fuel.”

Shreedhar Motors chief executive, Arvin Narayan, has assured that due to innovation of new technologies in modern vehicles, they were continuously investing and providing technical training to their technicians.

“Every year we send our best technicians to attend Ford world cup challenge,” he said.
