Minister for Economy Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says Fiji has the capacity to buy the COVID-19 vaccines and they are not just relying on aid or grant.
While speaking during the Virtual Public Budget Consultation from Singapore, Sayed-Khaiyum says they are willing to pay for the vaccines even if it costs up to $60 million.
