Fiji to Keep GrowingFiji to Keep Growing

Fiji’s Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama pledged on Sunday to continue to grow the South Pacific Island state’s economy in 2018 and bring greater opportunity for Fijians, Xinhua reported. “We had to keep growing the Fijian economy, bringing greater opportunity into the lives of our people and caring for those Fijians who are most vulnerable in our society,” the prime minister said in a new year message. As a small island state, which has a population of around 900,000, Fiji’s economy has soared to its eighth straight year of economic growth and the prime minister attributed the continued growth to the factors such as consistent economic policies, fiscal management, investment in infrastructure and the effort and energy of ordinary Fijians. There is nothing but positive projections for the country’s growth in the years ahead, he said, adding that they must stick with that game plan in 2018 and beyond.
