ASIAN Development Bank president Takehiko Nakao has commended Fiji’s impressive economic growth and prudent fiscal management.

“The government has exercised prudent macroeconomic management in recent years. This has attracted new investments and created an environment in which businesses can grow and generate more jobs,” said Mr Nakao.

“The ADB will continue working closely with Fiji to support the country’s efforts to achieve sustained, inclusive, private sector-led growth that brings benefits to the entire population.”

Mr Nakao visited Denarau Island Convention Centre and related facilities which will be the site of ADB’s 52nd annual meeting of the Board of Governors on May 1-5.

Today Mr Nakao met Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama to discuss ways ADB will expand and strengthen its partnership with Fiji.
