Good news for market vendors.

For this month, the municipal market vendors fees for thousands of vendors from Sigatoka, Nadi, Ba, Tavua, Rakiraki, Lautoka, Savusavu and Levuka has been waived.

In making this announcement, Minister for Local Government Parveen Kumar said Government was mindful of vendors who had been affected most during Tropical Cyclone Winston.

“We had some requests from vendors for waiver of fees for a month. We took that into consideration, keeping in mind that the agriculture sector has taken a massive hit during the cyclone.

“We are optimistic that within a month, these vendors would have been able to find stability and things would have started to normalise,” Mr Kumar said.

The announcement has been received very positively by the market vendors.
