FIJI’S economy is growing and the Fijian people are earning and spending more money, says Economy Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

Responding to a question on the country’s economic situation during his live Facebook consultation on the 2019-2020 National Budget, Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said this was a good thing and had an impact on overall liquidity.

He said it was the Reserve Bank of Fiji’s job to manage the country’s liquidity and given our high levels of foreign reserves and low core inflation, RBF adopted a monetary policy stance that supported the growth of the Fijian economy.
