Illegal Fiji PM off to China

FBCL News  - Friday, July 30, 2010

Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama leaves the country for China today to look at investment and trade opportunities. 

Bainimarama will be joined in China by the Reserve Bank Governor Sada Reddy, Attorney General Aiyaz-Sayed Khaiyum, and Air Pacific CEO David Pflieger.

 FTIB officials and a number of individuals from the private sector will also be part of the delegation which will hold meetings with potential investors from China and the Asia region. 

The delegation will also be present for Fiji Day events at the Shanghai Expo on August the 6th.

Meanwhile Bainimarama has told an Australian media interview that he is not bothered with the criticism directed at him by the Samoan Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi. 

Tuilaepa has accused Bainimarama of being ignorant but Bainimarama says the Samoan PM is not in his league as a leader. 

“You must understand where he is coming from. He is supported entirely by Australia and New Zealand. What has he done with regards to reforms in his country? Nothing. The only change he has made is to get people to drive from left to right, or from right to left, I cant understand which one. That’s the only thing he has done in his nation, so he can’t compare himself to me.” 

Bainimarama described Tuilaepa as a ‘lackey’ and a mouthpiece of Australia and New Zealand. 

“He is their mouthpiece – whenever the Australians and the Kiwis say jump, he says how high do you want me to jump.” 

Bainimarama says he is not worried about comments made by Tuilaepa and does not care about the Samoan PM’s actions.

  • It's funny that the regime leader can exercise his right to bad-mouth an elected Pacific leader in the overseas media,

    BUT WILL NOT ALLOW FIJI'S CITIZENS DO THE SAME FOR THEM HERE AT HOME! That is tell them the other side of the story, as ALL is not as rosy as they want the citizens to think and know. And that is the difference, the IGNORANTS will follow blindly, but NOT ALL ARE!!!

    One day Mafatu...cos whatever goes up must come down!!!!
