Minister for Economy has slammed comments made by Opposition Leader Sitiveni Rabuka and NFP Leader Professor Biman Prasad.
This is regarding the inconsistency of the Reserve Bank of Fiji 2016 to 2017 report.
Speaking in parliament during the debate on the report, both Rabuka and Prasad have highlighted contradicting statements that differ from the daily financial operations of government.
Rabuka says a clear verification is needed on some details released in the report.
Was the governor at the time of this report getting worried about some of his observation on some banking activities in Fiji, Mr Speaker Sir I would caution us on boasting about certification and gradings.
NFP leader Professor Biman Prasad also questioned the role of RBF being and independent organization.
In my view recent statement by the governor and the Reserve Bank
has actually compromised that because governors when they speak they send certain signals.
Meanwhile, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says both Rabuka and Prasad are casting stones without thinking.
The need to understand what they are saying, unfortunately it would appear that the leader of opposition, perhaps under some wrong advice has again framed to the area of black banning of the europeans and again he has spurt out information that we have addressed previously
Sayed-Khaiyum says it is vital for the Opposition Members to understand that everything is carried out in a transparent manner and thorough processes are followed when dealing with the economy or the Reserve Bank of Fiji.
