Update: 6:06PM THE Fijian economy is estimated to have expanded by 3.6 per cent last year following a 2.7 per cent and 1.7 per cent expansion in 2011 and 2012 respectively.

Speaking at the Fiji Indigenous Business Council symposium today, Reserve Bank of Fiji deputy governor Inia Naiyaga said they had four years of consecutive growth, a trend that was not normally seen in Fiji's history.

He said all sectors of the economy, with the exception of the mining and fishing sectors, contributed positively towards this growth last year.
