 The Fiji Sugar Corporation (FSC) is looking to government for its continuous support after the announcement of the 2013 budget.

Speaking to FijiLive FSC chair Abdul Khan said they are looking forward to hearing the announcement and they are sure government will continue to support the sugar industry.

“We see no reason why the government will not support the industry and we look forward to hearing a good budget,” said Khan.

He said they will appreciate whatever amount is allocated for the industry.

In the 2012 budget FSC’s financial assistance was adjusted to $40 million and in addition to its support government provided $700,000 for the purchase of farming equipments and machinery.

The 2013 budget will be announced by the Prime Minister and Minister for finance Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama at 3pm today at the FRCA Complex in Nasese and more than 300 guests are expected to attend the announcement.
