The 2021-2022 National Budget will focus on socio-economic recovery.

And in its effort to provide a more targeted policy response, the Ministry of Commerce, Trade, Tourism, and Transport has rolled out a national survey – the Business Impact Survey – and is designed with a specific focus on the socio-economic crisis triggered by the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The COVID-19 Business Impact Survey, according to the ministry, would assist it to better address the challenges Fijian businesses were facing at present, and inform strategies that ensured long-term sustainability.

“The survey is simple and focuses on key elements that are critical for the Fijian Government,” the ministry stated in a statement carried on the Government’s social media Facebook page.

“This includes the impact of the second wave of COVID-19 on revenue and employment, businesses’ ability to diversify, and how best they can be supported.”

The ministry is encouraging businesses across the private sector to participate in the survey.

The link to the survey: http://www.survey.mcttt.gov.fj/survey/business  will be available on the Ministry of Commerce, Trade, Tourism, and Transport website and various social media platforms.
