Govt receives submissions for 2014 Budget Members of Fiji's various community organizations and business groups have presented their submissions to Government as part of the lead-up to the 2014 budget in November.

A talanoa session for the various stakeholders in the economy was conducted at Fiji Revenue and Customs Authority (FRCA) headquarters in Suva yesterday and the event was hosted by the Finance Ministry and chaired by the Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

Governor of the Reserve Bank Barry Whiteside, FRCA chief executive Jitoko Tikolevu, and permanent secretaries from the Finance and National Planning ministry were also in attendance.

Apart from airling their views on the new budget, the organisations were also provided the opportunity to hear each other’s views.

They ranged from civil society groups such as the Citizens’ Constitutional Forum, Mareqeti Viti (Nature Fiji), the People’s Community Network and the Fiji Council of Social Services to the Fiji Sports Council and mainstream employer organizations such as the Fiji Chamber of Commerce, the Fiji Manufacturers Association and the Fiji Employers Federation.

 Representatives of the tourism, clothing, livestock and fishing industries were also present, along with a range of public enterprises such as Investment Fiji and the Fiji Roads Authority. Academics also took part.

 A dominant theme was a call from business for the Government to continue with its efforts to improve efficiency in the Civil Service and cut red tape.

Sayed-Khaiyum in his address said the Bainimarama Government had made significant reforms over the past few years that were badly overdue.

 “We need to treat the development of the economy in a holistic manner, balancing the different interests and ensuring that the much needed fundamental structural changes provide benefits for all Fijians," Sayed-Khaiyum said.
