Now is a perfect time for the real estate industry to unite and focus its efforts in creating transparency and confidence to enhance the importance of the industry and what it represents.

These were the sentiments made by Minister for Commerce, Trade, Tourism and Transport Fiayaz Koya during Jokhan Realtors 22-year journey at Paradiso Restaurant and Bar, Albert Park, Suva on Saturday night.

With business confidence in Fiji gaining momentum, tourism taking flight and the Investment Fiji Act 2021 passed, Fiji is now the most sought destination for both tourism and investment, he said.

 

“The Investment Act provides a leaner and easier to understand legal framework for investors, both domestic and foreign,” Mr Koya said.

“It at the same time provides ample protection to micro, small and medium enterprises and aftercare and guidance will be provided by Investment Fiji.”

“We’ve seen cases of dishonesty.”

 

“But we’ve also seen cases of trust.”

“And it’s where there is professionalism, consistent commission rates and customer service where we see trust thrives.”

“It is this trust that builds relationships, transparency and a good deal.”

Transforming Fiji
“As Government, we will continue bringing about the necessary reforms and best practices that support critical sectors like real estate.”

Mr Koya congratulated one of Fiji’s successful realtor, Reginald Jokhan, for his confidence in the industry.

“I have known Reginald for a number of years,” he said.

 

“I have seen his dedication and his drive to the real estate industry which is commendable.”

“What started with a vision to manage real estate property, has now become a renowned real estate service provider and a household name in the Industry.”

“Like all successful businesses, built on strong values and ethics, I can say that these principles and leadership has brought Jokhan Realtors to where it is today.”
