THE Attorney General Aiyaz-Sayed Khaiyum today hosted consultations for the 2018/2019 national budget at the University of the South Pacific.

During the consultations, Mr Sayed-Khaiyum highlighted the consultations were held so that people were able to contexualise the national budget.

“It’s actually quite true, once the budget is being delivered, a lot of people sort of tend to forget about the details but for us, it’s a bit time consuming but we thought it would be useful to do this,” Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said.

USP president and vice chancellor Professor Rajesh Chandra said they were in favour of the incentives of being provided by the Government and were looking forward to working with them.
