Fiji Dictator Offers Canadian Investors Quick Citizenship


SUVA – Fiji’s dictator Voreqe Bainimarama told Canadian investors to take advantage of Fiji’s dual citizenship policy.

The prime minister told Canadian investors visiting Fiji one of the purposes of dual citizenship was to attract investors, particularly former Fiji residents.

Under dual citizenship, permanent residency entitles former residents to almost all the rights and privileges of Fiji citizens including the right to invest and work.

“We have modernised a lot of laws and one of the improvements the government has made includes laws to protect investors. The reforms currently being implemented are also drawing investor confidence,” he said.

Fiji’s Trade Commissioner to Los Angeles Jitendra Singh told Commodore Bainimarama that the Canadian investors were interested in a range of business opportunities in Fiji, such as agriculture, transportation and property development.
