The head of government will also open the new Government Service Centre in Labasa later this week. Following the opening of the last service centre in Nausori last year, the Prime Minister pointed out its significance to all Fijians.

“The GSC means what it says ? service. We are serving the people, the taxpayers and their dependents who deserve much higher standards of attention, efficiency, courtesy and respect,” PM Bainimarama said.

“These centres will provide a single point – a one-stop shop – for at least 20 separate government agencies.”
