Government to invest more on human resources

July 28, 2017 1:30 am

There are a lot of options available for students who want to pursue tertiary education says Attorney General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

Speaking at the University of the South Pacific’s Open Day, Sayed-Khaiyum said there is flexibility in the Tertiary Education Loan Scheme to ensure more Fijians get good qualifications.

“If you are interested in getting good qualifications, the government’s objective is to help you get that qualification. Why are we doing this? Because we believe that we need to invest in our human resources and in our human capital. No country can become strong if the people of that country do not have the right level of qualifications.”_

Sayed-Khaiyum says having a qualified society will attract investors into the country which will help our economy to grow continuously.

The government has allocated more than $30 million to USP in the new budget.
