Abstract

This paper looks at the problems facing the Fiji sugar industry and the options and prospects for restructuring the industry. In recent years the sugar industry has been confronted with a number of problems, both internal and external, such as declining productivity both in the field and the factory, declining sugar quality, poor industrial relations, rising production costs, shortage of skilled manpower, ineffective management, fluctuations in world free market prices and phasing out of the long term market in the European Union. The sugar industry is too crucial to Fiji's economy to be ignored. The industry structure and stakeholder relationship is somewhat outdated and needs to be revisited. The study will explore some of the options for restructuring the industry to facilitate it survival.
