Quotes

While making his ruling Judge Justice Paul Madigan told Chaudhry "I find beyond reasonable doubt that you are in breach of the terms of Section 4, Section 3 and Section 26 of the Exchange Control Act, and I find you guilty of each count in the information."
Our vision is that "Financial services are widely accessed by all Pacific Islanders". To get there we have a mission statement that urges us "To create conditions that lead to the financial empowerment of Pacific Islanders in the short to medium term"
"Colleagues, it gives me immense pride and joy to inform all of you that on the 28 February 2014, we successfully achieved our target of reaching 150,000 unbanked Fijians. This is a target we had initially set in November 2009 following our first stakeholder workshop and one which we made a part of our Maya Declaration in Cancun in 2011. This goal would not have been achieved without the collaborative effort of all the stakeholders in Fiji and we are sincerely grateful to them."
"To invest in business, we must first learn to save. As iTaukei, our savings rate is much lower compared with others. If we don't save we will not be able to start a business or use our savings as equity to borrow from the bank" he said
