Fiji has the potential to create more jobs and spur growth through innovative ways to attract private investment such as Public-Private Partnerships.
This was the view of International Finance Corporation’s Global Director for Public-Private Partnerships-Emmanuel Nyirinkindi.
Nyirinkindi is currently in the country for a two day visit for discussions with the Fiji Government and Businesses.
In a first for healthcare in the Pacific Region, IFC has been advising the Government of Fiji on the first ever public-private partnership for the Lautoka and Ba Hospital.
The move will provide all Fijians with access to a wider range of higher quality health care services.
He said IFC was also looking at ways to help Fiji spur private sector investment in solar, to help achieve its target of 100 percent renewable energy by 2030.
IFC is a sister organization of the World Bank and is the largest global development institution focused on the private sector in emerging markets.
