The Fiji Military Forces has had a reduction in its budget allocation for next year.

It’s getting $106.8 million for 2013 compared to the $112.4million it had this year.

The Government Shipping Services now no longer comes under the RFMF – hence no allocation was given to it under the RFMF budget.

The 3FIR gets $18.8 million, the Naval Division gets $14.2 million, the Sinai Peacekeeping Mission gets $14.8 million, the Iraq Peacekeeping Mission gets $11.6 million and the Land Force Command gets $8.5 million.

The RFMF has over 3000 established staff.
