Attorney General and Minister for Communications, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says they still need Qorvis Communications to help them in some of the work that they get done behind the scenes internationally.
Qorvis Communications has been allocated $800,000 in the 2021/2022 National Budget.
He says they are also building local capacity and have also recruited the services of a local social media company and capacities are built.
Sayed-Khaiyum says they used to pay Qorvis Communications in access of $1 million which has been reduced.
He clarified this after National Federation Party Leader, Professor Biman Prasad questioned why the Government is still providing allocations to Qorvis Communications when the Government is spending millions of dollars on FBC and Fiji Sun.
Prasad says the Department of Information should be able to do the Government’s public relations work.
