EXPECT more infrastructure development, education opportunities and increased modernisation over the next four years, says Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama.

Speaking at the 2018 Prime Minister’s International Business Awards in Nadi on Saturday night, he said Fiji could expect the type of environment that would create opportunities for everyone.

“You can expect the vast majority of our expenditure to go towards infrastructure development, the education of our people and key steps that modernise our economy, ingrain new technology in our society, and grow our competitiveness in the global marketplace.

“You can expect policies that incentivise corporate sustainable development and if you take the lead in that arena, you can expect to be recognised for that effort.

“You can expect greater protections of our natural environment, you can expect even greater investment to climate-proof our economy and you can expect that Fiji will remain an advocate on the world stage, fighting for the causes that matter most to our citizens and our development. And you can expect to find, not an adversary or an oppressive regulator in my Government, but a partner to all of you and your continued success.”

Fiji Airways scooped the prestigious Supreme Award and 11 other businesses were recognised for their outstanding efforts and contribution to creativity and the Fijian economy.
