Drastic changes recommended

PAPEETE, Tahiti (Tahitipresse, June 17, 2010) – A French audit delegation came to French Polynesia a few weeks ago. Their first report insists on making drastic changes in the French Polynesian administration.

The report claims French Polynesia should sell some of its most valuable assets.

Some of these assets are for instance two ships from the Territorial flotilla and an ATR plane owned by the government of French Polynesia.

French Polynesia could also sell buildings owned in Paris, in Noumea, New Caledonia, and the Rocklands Hostel, in New Zealand, according to the report.

Many public agents will soon be retired and they should not be replaced, the Finances inspection also claimed.

The inspection also stressed the fact that were two many Territorial cars and number of ministers in the government should be limited to eight.

Many public establishments or joint-ventures deemed non essential could also be privatized.

The audit which occurred between April 26 and May 7 also focused on the French Polynesian Welfare system.

French Polynesia President Gaston Tong Sang said the report does cover many issues. Tong Sang however did not say if he would soon make drastic changes in the French Polynesian administration.

He claimed there is a difference between the ones who advocate changes and the ones who act and take the responsibility for it.
