Fiji government got ‘carried away’ with casino

Updated at 11:06 am on 11 August 2014

The leader of Fiji’s National Federation Party says the government got carried away with a plan for a casino in the country.

Professor Biman Prasad says he’s not surprised by news that the developer of Fiji’s first casino has sold its stake to another party.

The government announced late in 2011 that One Hundred Sands would build the casino, however construction hasn’t started.

Mr Prasad says real foreign investment in the country has remained low and the government’s own policies have impacted investor confidence.

He says it shows a lack of competence on part of the government that it was so easily wooed by the developer.

“To get carried away by these so-called investors and I think there’s been a number of instances where investors have come up, and there’s big media coverage and the government’s seen celebrating the proposals, rather than the actual implementation.”

The National Federation Party leader, Biman Prasad.

  1. Another example of the illegal Govt being either carried away or entrapped in a web of bribery was to do with the Waila City plan…area still under guava bush …we had the Vatuwaqa development given away to Chinese…there is something chronically wrong with this illegal Govt.

    Bainimarama statements to media and people exposes him as an uneducated bungling fool who is rough as guts, vindictive and an embarrassment to Fiji

    WE DO NOT VOTE FOR FIJI FIRST CANDIDATES

  2. i saw the NZ interview and it seemed like bainimarama was gloating when he was comparing himself to other dictators,e.g.Mugabe. It’s obvious this man is sick. How can an intelligent person vote for this moron.

  3. I didn’t hear anything from Bai to give acres of land from his village in Kiuva to the Chines people for the development. Why he’s using other land etc;
