Naupoto replaces Narayan as FTIB chair

The former Fiji navy commander, Viliame Naupoto, has been appointed the new chairman of Fiji Islands Trade & Investment Board (FTIB), replacing New Zealand Francis Narayan who quit.

Naupoto is also the Permanent Secretary for Fisheries and Forests. He was briefly the Permanent Secretary in the interim Prime Minister’s office after the abrogation of the Constitution on April the 10th. Naupoto was the Director of Immigration from December 2006 to April.

Under his directorship, three expatriate publishers – two from Fiji Times and one from Fiji Sun were deported between February 2008 and January 2009. Like many other military personnel seconded to the civil service and statutory organizations, Naupoto has no experience in the field of investment and business.

Francis Narayan was dismissed as investment consultant from the Fiji National Provident Fund last month by what is now the sacked FNPF Board.

They should just shut FTIB down as no right thinking investor will come and invest in Fiji because there is no rule of law and no democratic Government in place.

Imbersiles like Francis Narayan have made their money and what have they given Fiji in return - the path to bankruptcy.
