The 2022\2023 National Budget has been described as one of the outstanding budgets which is fit for its purpose and meets the expectations of every Fijian.
FijiFirst MP Joseph Nand says it has not come as a surprise because the FijiFirst Government is known to deliver what is best for Fijians.
He says despite facing an economic downturn due to COVID-19 the Fijian economy has bounced back and is admired by many nations.
Nand adds a strong aspect of the budget is in the sporting area where a grant of $6.9 million has been allocated to support the development of sporting activities.
He says we know what Fijians are capable of doing in the sporting arena, the only country to win gold in 7s Rugby Olympics back to back and the allocation of $1.9 million to assist and enhance the performance of Fiji national teams through participation in regional, and international tournaments has come at the right time.
He also says $200,000 has been allocated to engage local and international experts to enhance sports development.
