The introduction of motor vehicles that are fuel efficient and less dependent on fossil fuel is welcome in this day and age.

It will also bring about advancement in the economy and competition in the automotive industry allowing quality and value for money, says Attorney-General and Minister for Justice Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

While he acknowledged the Tappoo Group of Companies for launching its Kia Motors showroom, he said fuel-efficient vehicles would promote energy saving policy’s being practised by the Government.

He said the Government’s support for this business initiative of the Tappoo Group of Companies stemmed from the fact that it delivered a reduction on a dependence on fossil fuels that had cost Government billions of dollars.

“This will also push to a decrease in importation, and on this note I would like to thank the Tappoo Group for delivering a product that meets the policy of the current Government,” Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said.

“The added incentive will fast forward economic growth which is something that is needed,” he said.

Tappoo Group executive director Madhu Tappoo said the group was optimistic of success despite the fiercely competitive nature of Fiji’s automobile industry.

“We have never been afraid of competition and we have always dealt with leading global brands that we can stake our reputations on,” Mr Tappoo said.
