PM Wants Inclusive Banking Sector

Fiji needs a financial system that’s inclusive of everyone. Addressing hundreds of delegates at an international Forum in Nadi, Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama highlighted various steps being taken to provide a conducive banking sector. “We are also in the throes of the longest running period of economic growth in our history – seven straight years of expansion.” Bainimarama spoke about government’s efforts to make banking services cheap and accessible for all Fijians. One such initiative is the National Switch Bill before parliament which will provide a regulated centralized environment for using ATM’s and Point of Sale machines.
