Samoa delegation to learn from Fiji Commerce Commission

A delegation from Samoa is in Fiji to carry out a study on the functions of the Fiji Commerce Commission.

There are plans to establish a similar model in Samoa which is expected to strengthen ties between the two Pacific island nations in areas such as trade and private sector development.

FBC reports the Samoan delegation is learning how to minimize the challenges on competition and consumer affairs.

Fiji’s Ministry of Industry and Trade Permanent Secretary Shaheen Ali says this will not only benefit the country but will also enable a fair market price.

“It will lead to deeper regional integration. In this regard we see this scoping mission by Samoa as an important step to increased regional co-operation in the area of competition policy,” Ali said.

A fully fledged Samoa Commerce Commission is expected to start its operation by the second quarter of this year
