Corruption is still happening and the people involved are lawyers and accountants, says Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, Fiji’s Attorney General and Minister for Trade and Industries.

Sayed-Khaiyum made the comment while closing the Certified Public Accountants (CPA) Australia–Fiji Congress today in Nadi

He told participants at the congress that there needs to be cultural shift in attitude and conducting business away from the norm of doing things according to “who knows who”.

“Some companies complain about water and electricity. These developments are not taking place because of tax evasions by some people,” he said.

The AG highlighted the need for transparency and accountability to remain a core working component for lawyers and accountants.

He said that the focus must be on the growth of sustainable economic growth and sustainable livelihoods.

He added that under the Bainimarama Government, the focus is on a merit-based system and people need to be recognised for productivity.
