In an effort to enhance landowner development, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed today, 7th December 2015, between the Reserve Bank of Fiji and the iTaukei Land Trust Board (TLTB). The MOU was signed by TLTB Board Member, Ro Epeli Mataitini and Governor of the Reserve Bank of Fiji, Barry Whiteside. The signing ceremony was held at the RBF Boardroom.
The MOU arrangement sets a platform for information sharing between the two institutions to help strengthen the engagement of iTaukei landowners and ensure their meaningful inclusion in the national development and growth of the Fiji economy.
Although landowners have always been a part of national development, this MOU ensures a collaborative approach in the way that we will handle the iTaukei communities through data and information sharing. As part of its strategic direction, TLTB will also be able to provide the best financial services and investment opportunities for the sustainability, empowerment and security of iTaukei landowners.
