Reddy says no to imported items

The new Governor of the Reserve Bank of Fiji, Sada Reddy, says Fiji citizens will be affected by the 20 percent devaluation, but they can be spared if they move away from consuming a lot of imported items.

Mr Reddy who owns tourist villas at the idyllic location of Volivoli, Rakiraki near Wananavu Resort says locally produced items are the way to go.

But critics say families in Fiji need flour, rice, onions, garlic and potatoes, most of which are imported. They say it doesn't make sense for Mr Reddy to say they can go without.
