Public holidays clarified

There have been conflicting reports from members of the public querying Government's decision to discontinue two public holidays.

As per advertisement on page 4 of the Fiji Sun (Monday 22nd March 2010), the Ministry of Information wishes to clarify to members of the public that the only two public holidays that have been removed from Fiji's list of public holidays are the National Youth Day and Ratu Sir Lala Sukuna Day.

Official breaks for Christmas, Boxing Day, New Years Day, Good Friday, Easter Monday, Queen's Birthday, Diwali, Prophet Mohammed's Birthday, and Fiji Day continue as is.

The Employment Relations Promulgation has been amended as per Cabinet decision on 18th March 2010 to remove National Youth Day and Ratu Sir Lala Sukuna Day only from Fiji's public holiday listing.

Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama has noted that while the Ratu Sukuna and National Youth days are significant, Fiji does not require specific public holidays to commemorate these two occasions. He said Fiji already has a high number of public holidays.

By reducing the number of public holidays, the Prime Minister says that "we as a nation will be, among other things, more focussed on productivity and increased output."

"These are essential if we are to modernise and grow our economy and improve our living standards."
