The research paper aims to share information about the upcoming budget address and elections. Fiji has become one of the first Pacific Island nations to do a budget review. Moreover, the government has been continuously changing their budget reforms, policy and reporting over the years. As the elections loom, the government changes their budget address to benefit the public. The changes are certain to benefit the public; but in return, the government aims to have the public pledge to vote them back. The paper explains the changes the government will incur during the new budget address and what benefits the public may rip. Furthermore, the paper’s final section will explain the economic damages Fiji is expected to have based on the international conflict.


Key words: Budget, Debt, Inflation, Election, Political Instability.
