Coverage of the end of the two-week visit by the IMF delegation has been a bit mixed.
Jonathan Dunn's delegation issued its statement yesterday and some of today's headlines had different takes on the success of the visit.
The Fiji Live headline was 'Sustainable policies needed: IMF'.
The Fiji Sun headline was: 'We'll stand by Fiji, International Monetary Fund says'.
Below is the relevant part of the IMF statement for you to make your own conclusions:
“The authorities and the mission agreed that the policies should be set so as to put Fiji on the path to sustainable and broad-based growth. We will continue to discuss policy measures required to ensure fiscal sustainability and specific structural reforms to underpin Fiji’s medium-term growth while protecting the vulnerable. We welcome the authorities’ intention to approach donors for support for key structural reforms of public enterprises and the civil service.
“The mission greatly appreciated the authorities’ openness and the frank discussions of the economic challenges faced by Fiji. The IMF looks forward to the possibility of making further progress toward these ends in the coming months that would ensure external stability and help catalyze donor support for Fiji’s reform efforts.”
