Ok we have ONE question. AND WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME THAT THE NZ PM VISITED FIJI? but of course he would be an expert on Fiji. Come to Fiji mate and see for yourself what its really like, and ask Mind Pearl about investment, Natadola etc.
MULTIPLE coups have ravaged Fiji’s finances, investment and tourism while poverty rises, New Zealand Prime Minister John Key says.
That, together with climate change and the global financial crisis would be top of discussions at the Pacific Islands Forum in Cairns this week, Mr Key said at the Queensland University of Technology business forum in Brisbane today.
“If you look at Fiji, just as one example (of the Pacific islands) of how the coup is impacting on the appetite of people to invest in Fiji,” Mr Key said.
“We are seeing an increasing number of Fijians below the poverty line, quite alarming numbers actually, and that’s not unique around the Pacific.”
