Infrastructure development is key: PM

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says Fiji sees the development of national infrastructure as the key to unlocking economic potential.
Speaking at the Commonwealth Business Forum in Malta, Bainimarama said this has been the mainstay of the reform program undertaken by his government.
He says they had to upend the existing political order that had kept Fiji in a state of perpetual division and arrested development since independence.
Bainimarama says this revolution cost Fiji its place in the Commonwealth for 5 years and fractured some of Fiji’s traditional relationships.
However, Bainimarama says Fiji makes no apology for it because the country that has emerged from that process of radical change is one of genuine opportunities for every Fijian.
