Government will announce further initiatives to assist those in the micro enterprise, small business and medium business sectors.
These initiatives will involve quick and transparent processes to ensure those affected by the COVID-19 crisis- get livelihood opportunities.
Government forecasts its assistance through the Fiji National Provident Fund cost around 30 million dollars.
This is the direct result of FNPF statistics on members with very less funds in need of assistance.
So far $26,850 have been paid out to applications from the informal sector.
All funds and assistance from government will be dispersed through FNPF.
Employers are urged to help employees and former employees in the application for these assistance.
