Daylight saving comes into effect in Fiji from November 2, 2014.
A Government notification said that all clocks should be moved forward by one hour at 2 am on that day.
Daylight saving will end on Sunday, January 18, 2015, it said.
Fiji Retailers Association President Himmat Lodhia said that there would be no actual economic gains from the move but said that some lifestyle adjustments would be necessary.
“We are looking at the positive side and advantages of daylight savings. We know that tourists will love the added evening hours to spend in the sea and sand. Workers throughout Fiji will have the extra daylight hours with their families and friends. This means good quality time will be spent with the family. This also means additional advantage to the home gardeners and sports people,” he said.
Mr Lodhia said that Suva City and the newly developed foreshore paths will experience the best use of the extended daylight hour.
