FOR the first time, as part of its staff financial inclusion and literacy program, Fiji Gateway Hotel partnered with the Reserve Bank of Fiji to provide the much-needed awareness training to its staff members.

According to Tourism Fiji some of the areas the training covered include planning and budgeting, the importance of saving and how to inculcate the habits of savings for a sustainable livelihood.

“We will continue to support financial literacy because we know that it is investing in our people which is important,” said Lusi Kamanalagi, Hotel manager for Fiji Gateway.
