Refurbishment of RFMF infrastructure to slow down due to budget cut

June 12, 2019 1:05 pm

Refurbishment of the Fiji Military Forces infrastructure will now slow down due to the cut down of its budget by more than $7million.

Speaking to FBC News, RFMF Commander Rear Admiral Viliame Naupoto says they will reduce the costing of restoring and upgrading they are currently doing with their infrastructure.

Naupoto says this is due to the fact that their budget went from $103.3million for last year to $95.5million this year.

“RFMF infrastructure is so old and over the years what we have been doing, we’ve been asking money to allow us to repair and refurbish the quarters and the office spaces we have. It is that area that will be reduced a little bit, slow down and hopefully we can pick it up again next year if the economy is well up again.”

Naupoto adds that nothing else will be affected by the budget cut.

He says the new budget will allow them to do their job in the country and also support troops serving in the five mission overseas for peacekeeping.
