Fiji's interim regime has approved the re-introduction of daylight saving.
It will take effect from Nov 29th until April 25th 2010.
Cabinet based its decision on a submission by interim Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.
Sayed-Khaiyum said in 1999, the Ministry of Labour reported there was an overall increase in economic activity and productive work as a result of daylight saving.
He said it would also be good for the tourists as they will have more daylight time for activities and shopping.
But critics say daylight saving will not improve Fiji's deteriorating economy and that a tropical nation like Fiji does not need daylight saving.
