The rate of home ownership is very low in the country.
This was highlighted by Economy Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, during the 2019/2020 National Budget consultation in Suva yesterday.
Sayed-Khaiyum says this will be one area of focus.
“When I say increase the rate of home ownership I mean secure land, secure title not living on some tiritiri or squatter land, access to secure title.”
He adds their focus will be to increase the supply of residential lots.
Fijians have time until the 26th of next month to hand in their written submissions as the National Budget for the 2019/2020 financial year will be delivered on June 7th.
