05:21 am GMT+12, 25/06/2020, Fiji

Fiji's Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has announced that the National Budget will be on 17 July.
 
During a Talanoa session in Nakasi, Bainimarama says those who haven’t made their submissions have exactly three weeks before the announcement is made.
 
Fijians and businesses are eagerly waiting for the budget as it is expected to have a number of measures to counter the impact of COVID-19.
 
Minister for Economy, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, is currently holding budget consultations around the country and is in Sigatoka and Nadi today.
 
Meanwwhile, Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama today opened the new $1.7 million (US$782,000) Nakasi Fire Station.
 
During the opening, Prime Minster Bainimarama said the investment will provide service in the growing community.
 
“Whenever I turn on the news or open the paper and see an image of a building engulfed in flames, I get a sinking feeling in my stomach, and my first thought, like any Fijian is whether those inside made in out today,” PM Bainimarama said.
