The culture of saving and planning for the future is crucial, says Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.
In receiving the $704,919 dividend cheque from Unit Trust of Fiji at the Ministry of Economy today, the A-G said the Government is excited because they have seen a rise in many ordinary Fijians buying units at Unit Trust of Fiji.
“Which is great because that is what Government is trying to promote a culture of savings and planning for the future. I would like to thank the board, in particular the management for the very strategic decisions that they have made,” he said.
“The fact that you get a rate of return of 19 per cent is highly significant. If you put your money in Unit Trust Fiji you will get a much better rate of return and it is a very good investment.”
Also present at the handover was UTOF chairperson and director Ms Shaenaz Voss and other board members.
