FIJI’S economy is on track to grow for nine straight years in a row.

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama said this while addressing members of the Tailevu Provincial Council meeting at Nauluvatu Village in Nakelo yesterday.

“Our unemployment stands at the lowest rate in 20 years, investment is flowing into the country, moving forward new investment projects across the country,” Mr Bainimarama said.

“We are also massively expanding the reach of services, water, electricity, telecommunications, along with access to education at all levels, medical and other essential government services that are reaching many remote and rural locations for the very first time,” he said.

“We’ve also seen a boom in infrastructure development, with new roads, bridges, ports, and jetties being built around the country, in rural and urban areas alike.”
