Dr Abdul Hassan has been retained as chairman of the Real Estate Agents Licensing Board.
A senior lecturer and acting Head of School in Land for the University of the South Pacific, Dr Hassan has been reappointed for another two years, the REALB confirmed in a press statement.
He is joined by Sekove Tamanikula, the Director Economics at the Ministry of Industry & Trade, and architect Hemant Kumar, managing director of Maisuria Design Architects.
Also joining the Board soon is a nominee from the Office of the Solicitor-General.
“This will be Dr Hassan’s second term in office and it was under his leadership that REALB secured working partnerships with various stakeholders, and the signing of MOUs with the Fiji Revenue and Customs Authority and the Fiji Financial Intelligence Unit,” REALB noted.
Dr Hassan is a registered value in Fiji and a Fellow of the Fiji Institute of Valuation & Estate Management, and has carried out considerable research into areas that include the sustainable development of low -cost urban housing in Fiji and the inequity in the local government taxation system.
“Under their leadership, the Board will look at the licensing of real estate agents and the granting of permits, approving salespersons, branch managers and will also deal with disciplinary matters relating to real estate agents, and organize seminars for agents and course for sales persons.”
