Fiji Supplementary Budget will be tabled today
8:53 pm GMT+12, 25/03/2020, Fiji

Fiji’s COVID19 supplementary budget will be tabled to Parliament at 7.30pm tonight.
 
Economy Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum had said the Supplementary budget was necessary to minimise the brunt of COVID-19 and its impact in Fiji.
 
“Last Thursday, Fiji saw our first case of the novel coronavirus.
 
“Today, one week later, we're introducing a #COVID19Budget Response to offer relief to Fijian families, bolster businesses, protect workers, and fund life-saving containment efforts.
 
We haven’t a moment to spare,” Sayed Khaiyum said on twitter.
 
The new budget will introduce fiscal policies which will help all cross-sections of Fiji to brace against COVID-19.

As the true scale of COVID-19’s effects on Fiji continues to unravel, Sayed-Khaiyum says years of economic prosperity have placed us on a strong foundation.
