The A-G also launched free WiFI hot-spots for students across the Nasinu campus under the Digital Fiji initiative.

While speaking to the FNU students, the A-G explained about various government initiatives and projects to benefit all Fijians in the 2018/2019 National Budget.

The A-G said the new budget is building upon previous budgets to ensure further economic growth.

He highlighted new and ongoing assistance programmes in the education, health, sugar and agriculture, social welfare, infrastructure, rural development, employment and housing sector.

Students present at the budget roadshow raised issues on the real estate sector, First Home Purchase Grant, TELS, allocation for higher education institutions, minimum wage and the price of sugar.

The next budget roadshow will be held at the Fiji National University Natabua Campus, Lautoka at 9am and at Votualevu College in Nadi at 7:30pm on Thursday.
