Fiji budget to focus on cyclone rebuild and climate change

10:16 am on 22 June 2016

The Fiji government says intensifying the rebuilding effort after Cyclone Winston and developing enduring climate-change mitigation measures will be its top priorities in the Budget to be announced later today.

It's the first budget delivered after the government controversially moved its financial year to start in August.

Previously the financial year mirrored the calendar year.
