Fiji's 2011 Budget will be announced at 11 o'clock but security to the venue where the address is being delivered by the acting Minister of Finance, Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum, is tight.
The roads to the FIRCA headquarters have been cordoned off - the first time the country's budget has been delivered under such tight security.
The self-appointed prime minister, Voreqe Bainimarama, was to have been back in the country to deliver the budget but is now reported to returning later today.
It's being tipped the budget will focus on improving efficiency in various regulatory bodies.
Fiji Broadcasting Corporation says "bureaucracy will be removed to enhance reforms – even if it means engaging the services of expatriates."
It says "Bainimarama has stated that if Fiji is to attract investors into Fiji, we must have the right environment and attitude to facilitate these investors."
