Government emphasises exports, agriculture and rural development

The Interim Government is expected to complete financial management reforms in the public service by June 2007. Part of the reform will see to financial information for all ministries being centralised so that they can be monitored daily.

In a discussion yesterday, the Interim Minister for Finance said that the immediate challenges for the Fiji economy varied from the decline in exports to developments in agriculture and the rural sector.

Changes in strategy, policy and resource allocation to these sectors are expected to be announced in the National Budget to be announced early March 2007. More incentives are expected to be provided to the export sector. More emphasis are also expected to be placed on agriculture and rural development with regard to using Fiji's natural resources and putting them to more productive use.
