GRADUATES of the University of Fiji have been challenged to develop a spirit of entrepreneurship and look towards developing little businesses to boost economic growth.

President and Chancellor of the university Ratu Epeli Nailatikau cited a suggestion made by the Reserve Bank for the development of small and medium enterprises to boost employment.

He also called on the university to develop teaching modules that support the creation of SMEs.

"In recent weeks, the deputy governor of the Reserve Bank stressed the importance of small and medium enterprises to the Fijian economy and the potential for this sector to produce more employment opportunities including self-employment," said Ratu Epeli.

A total of 240 students graduated from the university on Friday.
