Update: 12:23PM FIJI’S new democracy is bound to open up new avenues and opportunities and we must seize them, says the Prime Minister, Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama.

“So we intend, as a Government, to redouble our efforts to streamline our economy, improve its performance, attract new investment and create the jobs on which the prosperity of many of our people depends,” he said while opening the 2015 Budget Forum in Suva yesterday.

The forum was held in the lead up to the 2015 Budget announcement, which is likely to be in November as usual.
