The government is currently studying how to make the payment of all salaries and wages through a system which involves no cash payment.
Speaking at an ANZ event to drive paperless and cashless society in Fiji, Sayed-Khaiyum says with this new system we can deal with issues like the exploitation of workers.
Sayed-Khaiyum also transferred a batch of online payments by the Fijian government over ANZ Transactive today.
ANZ Transactive is the bank’s web-based payments portal.
The Ministry of Economy has decided to use ANZ Transactive for all its payments, reducing the need for cheques.
70% of all government payments are now made through electronic platforms.Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
