World Bank Willing To Assist Fiji

The World Bank is willing to assist in reforming our civil service.

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama said yesterday:

“It was only about a week ago I had highly successful meetings with senior officials of the World Bank who are assisting us with our Civil Service reforms.”

Mr Bainimarama also met with the Asian Development Bank officials.

He confirmed they are offering financial and technical assistance with our developments and reforms in infrastructure and the public sector.

“Fiji is on the move. Fiji is open for business,” he said.

There have been talks that the World Bank and the ADB are going to loan Fiji US$50 million (FJ$95.8 million).

Radio New Zealand reported World Bank Country Director, Franz-Drees Gross, saying the loan comes after a year of technical re-engagement with Fiji to get a sense of government’s direction.

He said they are looking forward to a very productive partnership with Fiji

“I think there is a lot of eagerness, from the government, to re-engage with us,” he said.

“We are certainly eager to provide them with good service and I think they are a sophisticated country. We can do a lot of very good things together over the next couple of years.”
