Pernix Fiji Pte Limited has today donated $20,000 towards the government's COVID-19 Trust Fund.

While receiving the donation, Attorney General and Minister for Economy Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says we are going through a number of motions at the moment in respect of the impact of COVID-19 not just from a health perspective but also the economic perspective and how we mitigate those problems that have arisen due to COVID-19.

Sayed-Khaiyum says they are trying to think of new ways to ensure that we adapt to the new environment during the COVID-19 situation and post COVID-19 situation.

He adds they are appreciative of the donation.
