Electronic-commerce is a major challenge faced by the Fiji Commerce Commission this year.
Commission Chief Executive Officer Joel Abraham says one of the major plans of the commission next year is to develop guidelines for e-commerce.
“We find that as we are going into this technological age and era, our laws probably have not been design to deal with the advancement in technology. So how do we deal with people who have open accounts on Facebook and started selling things off Facebook, now people are selling clothes, shoes even books computers and so forth”.
Abraham says they have also received numerous reports regarding misleading advertisements and they have also come up with plans to develop guidelines on this.
