Update: 11:50AM FIJI'S economy is resilient and has the ability to bounce back from any crisis, says acting Commissioner Western Luke Moroivalu.

Speaking at the opening of the University of the South Pacifics Fiji Economy Update in Lautoka this morning, he said despite being hit by natural disasters in 2012 and lackluster investment confidence because of the political instability in the country, the economy grew by 3.6 per cent in 2013.

Academics attending the forum, however, said focus had to be given to growing the agriculture sector by providing market access for their goods to sustain economic growth in the country.
