He says the Education Ministry, being the biggest ministry, plays a pivotal role in preparing students with the right knowledge, skills, and capacity for the future of the workforce in Fiji.

He says as the world is getting smaller with improved technology and communication, the Coalition government will invests in technology to ensure that all schools are equipped with computers and software that will enable Fiji to be the hub of technology in the Pacific.
