Kevin Barr praises Fiji’s 2014 Budget

Father Kevin Barr says Fiji’s 2014 budget is the first “people-centred” and “pro-poor” budget for many years.

Speaking as a panellist on the topic “Implementation of Socio-Economic Rights'” at the Attorney-General’s 15th annual conference, he congratulated government on its initiatives and said the generous allocations for education would bring a radical change in parents’ ability to send their children to school.

At the same time, Barr said he hoped assistance would continue as Fiji still had a long way to go “if we are to adequately address the basic socio-economic needs of so many people in Fiji today.”
