Fiji Consumer Council applaudes budget incentives

8:19 am on 5 July 2010

The Consumer Council of Fiji is urging consumers as well as businesses to take advantage of the incentives given in the 2010 Review budget.

The council believes that government is being socially responsible by providing the means to spur economic activity and growth that will benefit all sectors of society.

Fiji Village reports Consumer Council Chief Executive Officer Premila Kumar as saying the council sees the budget as logical and practical.

Ms Kumar added that the council believes the increase in the fiscal duty on imported vegetables will not have a major impact on consumers as there are local alternatives.
