There will be a lot of continuity of specific policies in respect to Communications, Civil Service and Economy Ministries says Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

Speaking after the swearing-in ceremony at the State House today, Sayed-Khaiyum says a number of programs have already been rolled out while the others will come to the floor next year.

In terms of the Ministry of Communications, Sayed-Khaiyum says they are working on e-governance and the digitization of many records.

“As you know couple of Apps have already been launched. We hope to in a couple of weeks launch an app where you should be able to register your baby online – once you get the birth notification from the hospital. As you know it is a very exciting period for us as we have partnered with the Singapore government – so a number of projects will come to the floor in the next one year.”

He says with the public enterprise, there is a huge focus on some of the public private partnership.

“As you know the Lautoka and Ba Hospital – the tender successfully going to the Aspen Hospital. When you see an exponential growth in the numbers of procedures being made available in Fiji – so things like 24/7 open heart surgeries will be made available in Fiji – this is purely through the PPP that has been put in place. Does not mean any additional cost for ordinary Fijians – but the reality is that the service level will increase.”

Sayed-Khaiyum has retained his portfolio which includes Attorney General and Minister for Economy, Public Enterprises, Civil Services and Communications.
