THE National Federation Party will look for other avenues to generate more income for the country's economy as it plans to reduce the VAT from 15 per cent to 10 per cent if voted into parliament.
While the party will not reveal the avenues, it will also ensure the cost of living is made affordable for the people of Fiji.
This was revealed to this newspaper by one of the party's candidate, Parmod Chand, after he met supporters in the Tuatua area in Labasa on Monday night.
"We understand that tax is one of the country's major income earners but we have mapped out strategies that are aimed at injecting more money into the economy," Mr Chand said.
"At the moment, the party will only reveal some of its policies because we don't want other parties to copy the way we have strategised our manifesto.
"But some of our priorities are to reduce the cost of living and the VAT, improve the Police force and also create employment opportunities for the people, especially youths.
"We also aim to create more economic activities."
Mr Chand has also urged supporters not to be swayed by mere talks but maintained their beliefs for the party.
About 100 supporters turned up at the meeting where they had the opportunity to discuss issues they wanted addressed.
