Roadside Vendors To Boost Business With Standardised Stalls

If you want to start your own roadside stall business, then you are in luck.

The Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism un­der the Fijian Government have recently advertised for expression of interests for standardised roadside stalls.

When you become a roadside vendor you make an im­mense contribution to the economy.

Roadside vendors are very important because they are selling goods or produce that are feeding and sustaining our communities.

They also give tourists or visitors to our country a sam­ple of the Fijian-grown produce and which many of the vendors are putting in the long hours to harvest what they planted or produced themselves.

As announced in the 2018-2019 National Budget, the Fi­jian Government will continue to provide high-quality standardised roadside stalls to vendors who operate in areas outside of municipal boundaries and meet the set criteria.

So Government is improving the quality and presentation of roadside stalls, which are utilised by ven­dors to sell agricul­tural produce, by pro­viding presentable, durable and standard­ised structures.

Government has continued its support to invest into the Fi­jian people, and that includes funding new and innovative pro­grammes such as the standardised roadside stalls.

About roadside stalls

The Bainimarama Government, has a strong financial man­agement which has put the Fijian econo­my on track to record nine straight years of economic growth.

Roadside stalls provide our rural community with a physical location from where they are able to operate and earn a living.

These stalls are a common sight when travelling along the main highways that is Queen’s Road, the King’s Road or the Hibiscus Highway

Not only does that put more money in your pockets, but you are better served by a larger offering of Government services.

So make the most of it and apply for such programmes as these standardised roadside stalls to start your busi­ness.

The application form and criteria can be accessed from the Ministry’s website http://www.mitt.gov.fj/ or picked up from the Ministry, Department of Co-operative Busi­ness in any division or Department of National Trade and Measurements in Lautoka or Labasa.
