What’s behind the port deal?

A Sri Lankan company, Aitken Spence, has been handed control of management and operation of the Fiji Ports Corporation for fifteen years. How this will operate has not been made clear. Will they set the charges for port services? Have they paid money to the regime for this right to get a percentage of everything that passes across our wharves? Bainimarama and Khaiyum think they own all our national assets and have a right to do whatever they like with them.

    Aitken Spence announced plans to take over the management of two Fijian ports, Suva and Lautoka, with its proposed purchase of 51% of Ports Terminal Ltd, a 100% owned subsidiary of Fiji Ports Corporation Ltd.Nothing like off-shoring everything we own, with the profits going in to the pockets of a few.

    This is just the beginning. The real sell out of national assets by Khaiyum is still to come. Watch out for his moves on FEA. This is the largest of the state owned enterprises with assets of nearly $ 1 billion. What a deal selling this will be for aunty Nur and Khaiyum.
