THE Capital Markets Week is centred on an industry that is essential to our economy.

Reserve Bank of Fiji (RBF) Governor and chairman of the Capital Markets Advisory and Development Taskforce, Ariff Ali said this during the launch of the Capital Markets Week at RBF this morning.

“The capital markets play a critical role in mobilising savings into medium to long- term productive use in both the public and private sectors,” Mr Ali said.

He especially paid tribute to their sponsors.

“Many Fijians have very little to no knowledge of Fiji’s capital markets, its functions and the investment opportunities available,” he said.

Mr Ali said this was why they were staging the week-long awareness campaign to educate members of the public.

He invited members of the public to visit information kiosks at the FNPF Downtown Boulevard and talk to experts to learn more about investment products on offer.
