Minister for Economy, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum

The National Budget has to be able to respond to those regional employment preferences in other countries which has an impact on us as we have our skilled professionals like nurses, accountants and chefs leaving for jobs overseas.

Minister for Economy, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum has made these comments as he says Fiji has to train people following the departure of the skilled professionals.

Sayed-Khaiyum says we are lucky that we do not have an ageing population, and we have a cadre of people that have to be trained.

The Minister will present the budget at 8pm tomorrow.
