Land rental fees on government land leases in areas badly affected by the floods and declared disaster zones in the Western Division has been waived for one year.

The decision taken by the Prime Minister and Minister for Lands and Mineral Resources Voreqe Bainimarama comes after his two-day tour of the West assessing the damage caused by floods.

Permanent Secretary for the Ministry of Lands and Mineral Resources, Filimone Kau said that the decision would mean that government land tenants in the affected areas of the West will have their land rent free from last month to January next year.

He added they will identify tenants badly affected who will benefit from the waiver which is being allowed to allow tenants to concentrate on rehabilitation and rebuilding programs.
