Fiji stumps up $1million
FijiLive says it was told by the interim prime minister's permanent secretary, Pio Tikoduadua, that the money was approved at a meeting of senior government officials this morning. “We have allocated $1 million for the immediate needs."
He said government has not yet received any monetary assistance from foreign governments apart from the medical and emergency supplies provided by Australia and New Zealand delivered in two Hercules airplanes, and the French government’s aerial surveillance plane.
“The PM will be visiting the North, Lau and Lomaiviti on Friday,” Tikoduadua added.
