PSV consultations begin in Suva, stakeholders urged to participate

Consultations with public service vehicle (PSV) stakeholders are underway today in Suva to gather their feedback and input on matters relating to permit policies, processes, and their industry.

Fiji’s land transport authority has extended the invitation to hire (LH), Minibus (LM), and Rental (LR) permit holders, urging them to participate in the consultation scheduled for Albert Park Hall in Suva, the first of three such discussions planned across Fiji.

“Following our Board’s series of meetings with the Attorney General and Minister for Economy and our Minister for Transport respectively, we are focused on reviewing our various policies and processes to align them to be relevant to the current socio-economic situation and trading environment to play our part in facilitating ease of doing business and equal opportunities for our stakeholders,” said LTA Board Chairman, James Sowane

“We strongly urge all PSV permit holders who fall under these categories to attend, so they can communicate to us directly what their concerns are, either through a verbal presentation or through written submissions.”

“These consultations are quite important as they enable us to interact and communicate with our valued stakeholders, and learn of their experiences, perspectives, needs, and difficulties.”

In Suva, minibus permit holders’ session runs from 9am to 11am, followed by a session for rental permit holders from 11am to 1pm, concluding with hire permit holders’ session from 2pm to 4pm.

The second and third round of consultations are planned for Tuesday 22 March at Lautoka’s Girmit Centre and Thursday 24 March at Labasa Civic Centre on Thursday 24 March respectively, and submission timings by permit type will be as per the schedule followed in Suva.
