Public Enterprise restructuring in Fiji has preceded wider civil service reforms in both pace and magnitude. Part of this has to do with the fact that the model being used for reforms is at least theoretically supposed to face fewer problems in its application to Public Enterprises because of its efficiency/cost orientation. A part of this can be explained by the political and economic imperatives of ruling governments in Fiji. On the other hand, the reform process has attracted its share of criticisms. This article analyses critically the New Public Management (NPM) model for public sector reforms and outlines the domestic political and economic framework within which the restructuring of Public Enterprises has taken place in Fiji so far.
