The Gov­ern­ment is in the process of re­view­ing the salary pack­ages of all civil ser­vants. At­tor­ney-Gen­eral Aiyaz SayedKhaiyum made the com­ment dur­ing the an­nounce­ment of Fiji Air­ways Group’s record profit for 2015. Mr Khaiyum said this would in­clude ev­ery worker in the civil ser­vice. He said Gov­ern­ment met with one of the con­sul­tants from the World Bank on Mon­day on this is­sue. “We asked them to re­view the re­mu­ner­a­tion pack­ages or salaries for every­body in the civil ser­vice.” Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said this would in­clude every­one, “be­gin­ning from the driver right up to high man­age­ment level. “We be­lieve that peo­ple need to be re­warded by giv­ing them the right salary pack­age.” He said this would ap­ply to any­one whether they were a ju­nior or se­nior staff.

“We will only be able to do this if we are able to pick up the level of ef­fi­ciency, pro­fi­ciency and merit based ap­point­ments within the civil ser­vice.”
