GOVERNMENT ROADSHOWS


ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

A Government Roadshow are an initiative to take services offered by the government and its partners closer to remote rural and maritime communities. Coordinated by the Ministry of Rural and Maritime Development and National Disaster Management through the Office of the Divisional Commissioners, Government Roadshows aim to provide services of Government and its partners from one central location for the targeted population. This allows remote rural dwellers to access several basic public services in one location at a minimal cost.

BACKGROUND
Roadshows are part of the wider vision to empower rural communities and to ensure progressively that every Fijian has access to basic services. Fijians in rural communities may spend large sums of money to access services that they deserve and have a right to. Roadshows take services to those who need it the most at the cost of Government.

TARGET AUDIENCE
Remote or isolated rural and maritime communities that face challenges in accessing government services due to geography and travel costs are targeted for roadshows.
