Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum intent on flouting international trade rules

The illegal and treasonous Attorney General and Tourism Minister Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum reveals another shoddily thought out plan by the military regime to retain more tourist dollars.

In an attempt to curry favour with Ba landowners,  Khaiyum launches a grand plan to "Buy Fiji Made" which was probably derived from his mate Sada Reddy's Central Bank monetary policy of June 2009.

Only problem is that it's called protectionism and thereby flouts the norms of free trade. Not even the US is immune.

International world leaders have already vowed to holding protectionist pressures in check and Fiji can ill afford to be hauled up to the WTO to defend itself in an international trade dispute.
