Fiji’s cabinet has approved a policy to re-establish the Higher Salaries Commission.
This commission was previously responsible for deciding the salaries of CEOs in public enterprises, statutory bodies, and municipal councils. However, it was abolished in 2011, and the responsibility was given to the prime minister and relevant ministers.
The new policy aims to establish legislative mechanisms to revive the commission and provide guidelines for determining CEO salaries.
The Office of the Solicitor-General will review laws, gather public input, and draft a bill to support the Commission’s revival.
