In News, Public Consultation

Student representatives from about 20 schools in Suva attended the 2018-2019 National Budget consultations by the Attorney-General and Minister for Economy Hon. Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum. Speaking at Suva Grammar School, the A-G told the students that they have started engaging the schools in relation to the National Budget because the bulk of the population in Fiji is below the age of 27. “Very soon you all will become adults and will be walking into universities, you of course are the future of the country and indeed very soon will be making some decisions pertaining to our country,” the A-G said. Students raised issues that affect their education such as transportation and traffic while others mentioned the modernization of the education sector, clarifications on the housing assistance program, minimum wage rate and e-Ticketing. The A-G also gave a short presentation on the overview of the national economy, the opportunities that exist, problem areas that can be addressed in terms of reaching our economic growth and help to sustain economic growth.
