Fiji Economy Update 2010: Prasad's Presentation, Whitehead's Response
Meanwhile, the only presentations to which I have access are those by USP's Prof Biman Prasad, who details how Fiji had fallen behind its neighbours since the 2006 coup, and how each coup since 1987 has had a heavy financial cost, and by Mr Barry Whiteside, Deputy Governor of the Reserve Bank, who addresses some of Biman's comments.
Both presentations were in a pdf format that I cannot easily transcribe (tables and double columns collapse) but these links ( click here for Prasad and Whitehead ) only take moments to download. For readers who may wish to know more about the Reserve Bank, here is their website address. Biman also has a Powerpoint presentaton that can be seen by clicking here and scrolling down.
Given that the Government's Roadmap agenda will be difficult to achieve until the economy performs better, I commend these two presentations to serious readers as essential reading.
