 Acting Prime Minister and Minister for Economy, Aiyaz Sayed‑Khaiyum says the Fijian economy is doing well and has the capability to buffer itself from the downward trend of the world economy.

While officiating at the 2019 South Pacific Stock Exchange Annual Awards at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva last night, Sayed-Khaiyum says Fiji’s current liquidity is 640 million dollars and foreign reserves sit at 2.2 billion dollars.

Sayed-Khaiyum says due to the US‑China trade war, the downward trend in the world economy will be further degraded and Fiji will face challenges of what is happening globally.
