Expect prices of goods impacted by global factors, to continue to rise as the Reserve Bank of Fiji has predicted that the inflation rate which currently stands at 5 percent is expected to go as high as above 7 percent by the end of the year before it starts going down.

With these global issues continuing to affect us, the Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission has also confirmed that prices of Rewa Powdered Milk and Rewa Butter increase from today.
