Roadside Stalls Project
The Fijian Government, through the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism, is striving to improve the quality and standardise the structure of the roadside stalls, which falls outside municipal boundaries. Majority of these roadside stalls are old and makeshift, hence, the structures are susceptible to natural disasters, such as cyclones and flooding.
Through the Fijian Government’s Standardised Roadside Stalls project, the Ministry is working towards having standardised, presentable and hygiene stalls around the country.
As stipulated in the 5 Year National Development Plan, the Fijian Government will continue to provide quality and standardised roadside stalls to vendors who operate in areas outside of municipal boundaries, in Viti Levu and Vanua Levu and who meet the specified criteria.
- Applicant must have approval from the relevant authorities to operate a business.
- Applicant must operate from that location for at least five days a week.
- Applicant must have been in operation in that particular location for more than six months.
- The site for the stall must be on Road Reserve, on land owned by the vendor or in a village
- The location of the stall must be outside the municipal boundaries, along with major highways.
- The applicant must be over 18 years and agree to sign a Lease Agreement with the Fijian Government for the use of the stalls.
Vendors need to fulfil the prequalification requirements to be eligible to apply for a stall. Part 1 of the application is the prequalification requirements to determine if you are operating and are sustainable to continue. If you pass the initial review, then proceed to Part 2 of the application process. Part 2 includes a written application, with the submission of supporting documents.
Please see the application form for further details.
Upon submission of the complete application form to the Ministry, our best endeavours are made to quickly and appropriately respond to the applicant.
The Government has piloted this project in the 2017-2018 Budget year. A total of 20 semi-permanent stalls and 10 portable stalls were implemented. In the 2018-2019 Budget, a total of 95 stalls will be constructed around the country.
