The World Bank has told Fiji its priority is to build the economy.
The illegal regime met on Thursday with World Bank officials about the state of the economy and land reforms aimed at reviving the sugar industry.
The Fiji Broadcasting Corporation quotes self appointed prime minister Voreqe Bainimarama as saying the World Bank had given its support for the initiative and that plans were in place to help farmers.
He said the country’s economy had taken a hit over the past two years from natural disasters and the effects of the global economic crisis, but they were working hard to bounce back.
“As we’ve continually said we welcome the World Bank representatives to Fiji and apart from the global financial crisis the country is coming through and still recovering from national disasters that hit Fiji in 2009 and this year."
