Fiji's cabinet has endorsed the awarding of tax rebate incentives to cash sponsors of the Pacific Youth Festival.

Fiji Live reports a 100-percent tax rebate will be provided for a minimum of 4,836 US dollar cash sponsorship.

The interim Government is providing about 435,000 US dollars for the hosting of the event with the remaining funds to be sourced through sponsorships.

Twenty two countries have been invited to the event scheduled for July 11-18 at the University of the South Pacific's Laucala Bay Campus.
