The Reserve Bank of Fiji has revised upwards its projected economic growth figure for this year from 2-per cent to 2-point-7 per cent.
The Reserve Bank's monthly economic review says continued investment in Fiji has been supported by a booming construction industry and optimism in tourist arrivals.
It is also forecasting growth in fishing, forestry, electricity and water sectors.
The bank also recorded an increase in employment with 9-per cent more people registered as now working.
The bank's survey of jobs advertised in March recorded an increase of 18- per cent over the same month last year.
