It is time now after 17 years to have a new energy policy for Fiji.
This was stated by Katerina Syngellakis at the National Economic Summit.
Syngellakis says Fiji has not had an energy policy endorsed by cabinet since 2006.
She adds this is not helping the energy sector in its planning.
Syngellakis highlighted that energy is the driver of the economy for all sectors.
She adds we cannot achieve the planned GDP growth, without addressing the issues arising in the energy sector.
Syngellakis says the private sector has the potential to bring in millions of dollars in investment.
