THE National Federation Party has promised to reduce value added tax from 15 per cent to 10 per cent.

Speaking at a campaign in Wainikoro the party's national vice-president, Pramod Chand, told residents that the cost of living had become expensive.

Mr Chand said NFP would strive to reduce the cost of living to make it affordable for ordinary people.

"NFP is a party of integrity that can better the economic condition of this country," he said.

"This country has huge potential but the problem is the repeated coups it has had in the past which has greatly impeded economic development.

"Fiji's currency used to be stronger than Australia and New Zealand in the past but through devaluation and repeated coups it has lost its strength."

Mr Chand said NFP would not look at the past and that the party stood for a better future.

"This country needs visionary leaders like Doctor Biman Prasad who has wide knowledge of the economy and has the know-how of reviving it.

"As a party we are devoted to making an economically stable country.

"We also strive to mend the divide between all races and ensure stability."
