Chinese investor only waited 8 weeks, not 2 years

By Ioane Burese SUVA, Fiji (Fiji Times, Jan. 4, 2011) - The Government of Fiji has issued a Chinese investor with an industrial lease, cutting short the waiting period from 24 months to just eight weeks.

In a Ministry of Information statement, Minister for Lands and Mineral Resources Netani Sukanaivalu, hailed the work put in by various Government ministries and departments for collaborating to facilitate the needs of Tengy Cement (Fiji) Company Limited in record time.

The company was granted a 33 acres industrial lease which is to be the site of a cement factory, only the second one in the country.

Minister Sukanaivalu said this record-breaking turn-around time is what this Government had always wanted to do.

"This is what Government had been saying all along, that Government ministries and departments must re-look at their systems and processes and ensure we reduce our turn-around time," he said.
