Air­lines all over the world have started to lay off a huge num­ber of their staff at all lev­els.

They have also ac­cepted the im­pact of the COVID-19 pan­demic by let­ting go or re­turn­ing the leased pas­sen­ger planes, yet we in Fiji, de­spite the $455 mil­lion loan guar­an­tee by Gov­ern­ment on top of the ex­ist­ing loans, are un­able to re­tain our work­ers in their jobs.

Yet, the Gov­ern­ment talks of pride in re­gards to Fiji Air­ways, but than what use is pride if it does not put money in the pock­ets of our cit­i­zens and food on the table for them and their fam­i­lies?

I am con­fused by the goat strat­egy and would ap­pre­ci­ate trans­parency with how our econ­omy is be­ing man­aged.
