THE 2018-2019 National Budget is a $1billion year in Fijian education, says Minister for Economy and Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.
While delivering the National Budget this year, he said this was another historic allocation for the ministry.
“Before this Government many families were left heartbroken and some were unable to send their children to school at all,” he said.
“Those days have ended when this Government introduced the free education, free textbooks and subsidised transportation and the education revolution is alive and well with another historic allocation. The 2018-2019 Budget is a $1billion year in Fijian education.
“This is nearly 22 per cent of Government’s expenditure.”
