Expo at Downtown Boulevard in Suva will open today from 9am to 3pm.

The Financial Literacy Working Group organised Retirement Expo has been extended to today, Saturday April 28, be­cause of public demand.

It has been a week of overwhelming response as close to 2000 registered individuals sought consultation with one of the 23 exhibitors.

“From the response, it is a clear indication of the hunger out there for available information and that we must work in collaboration in order to drive the message of savings and retirement to the general public,” says Chairperson for the FLWG Ms Eseta Nadakuitavuki.

“We’ve been receiving a lot of feedback via social media and email from people simply en­quiring about pension calculation and options available to them.

“We have also received requests to hold the expo in the North and West. This is under con­sideration and we will make the necessary an­nouncements soon,” Ms Nadakuitavuki said.

The Expo is organised by the Financial Lit­eracy Working Group (FLWG) of the National Financial Inclusion Taskforce, in partnership with the FNPF, the Reserve Bank of Fiji and the UN’s Pacific Financial Inclusion Programme (PFIP).

The Expo will open its doors again today at the FNPF Downtown Boulevard from 9am and close at 3pm.

Organised by a subcommittee of financial in­stitutions and government ministries, the Expo will feature 23 exhibitors – ANZ, BSP Life, BSP Bank, BRED, FNPF, Fiji Public Trustee Corpo­ration, FDB, HFC Bank, iTaukei Affairs Board, ITLTB, Kontiki Finance, Ministry of Agricul­ture, Ministry of Lands and Mineral Resources, Ministry of iTaukei Affairs, NCSMED, SPBD, Unit Trust of Fiji, Westpac, Fijian Holdings Unit Trust, Merchant Finance, LICI and the Re­serve Bank of Fiji.

The Expo enables the public to seek advice on retirement planning, find out how to start a busi­ness, obtain information on the various govern­ment grant schemes available and on financial products such as insurance, investments and loans that could help supplement FNPF savings.

The public are encouraged to visit the Expo to get information on retirement planning.
