The People’s Coalition Cabinet held its 16th meeting this year. The
decisions include the following:
Cabinet approved the suspension of Daylight Saving and appropriate
legislative changes will be considered including the repeal of the Daylight
Saving Act 1998 (Act).
Fiji observes daylight saving under the Act which empowers the Minister for
Employment, Productivity, and Industrial Relations (Minister) to order any
period of consecutive days between the beginning of October and the end of
April, as a daylight-saving period.
Fiji has observed daylight saving since it was initially introduced in
1998. The intention was to benefit both the public and private sector.
The last daylight saving observed in Fiji was from 20 December 2020 till 17
January 2021.
