A WELL performing education system is crucial for long-term sustainable economic growth and prosperity, says University of the South Pacific economist Dr Neelesh Gounder.

Mr Gounder made the above comments while officiating as chief guest during the Fiji Teachers Union (FTU) annual general meeting earlier this week.

He said the fast changing dynamics of the global economy was not only impacting businesses but also influencing education systems around the world.

“Educational reform represents a long term focus and its goal is quality and relevant education for all,” he said.

“It is also important to note that recent education reforms are happening in a different context than previous eras of major changes in education system.”
