The Attorney-General and Minister for Economy Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said risk management would minimise the impact of Coronavirus.

“The reality of the matter is that the world is still assessing the impact of coronavirus on the global economy,” he said yesterday.

He said the World Bank issued a statement in respect of their willingness to work with different countries to address issues pertaining to coronavirus in order to prevent the spread of such viruses.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said while it was too early to speak on the impact of the virus on Fiji’s economy, the country was well prepared with the preventative measures in place.

The World Bank said it recognised the poorest countries and most vulnerable populations were often hardest hit by global disruptions like these.

The World Bank in a statement said: “We are calling on all countries to strengthen their health surveillance and response systems, which is essential to containing the spread of this and any future outbreaks.

“We support China’s efforts to respond including its efforts to maintain resilience in its economy.

“The World Bank Group stands ready to support all our client countries, especially the poorest and most vulnerable, to help manage the widening impact to their people of this crisis.”
