SUVA, Fiji (Fiji Times, Oct. 20, 2016) – Fiji Sugar Corporation CEO Abdul Khan has resigned.

Speaking to this newspaper last night, he said he was stepping down from the helm of the corporation because of health issues.

"I have to get myself sorted and then I will look at what is next in store for me in terms of career," Mr Khan said.

Mr Khan said after five years as head of the miller, he believed he had put the corporation and the industry in good stead.

"Others may think otherwise, but I have put the FSC in a good position to handle whatever challenges ahead.

"I still believe the FSC and the industry in general has a lot of potential and I do hope that whoever takes over has the foresight to carry on with the platform we have prepared and takes the industry to where it should be."

Mr Khan added that after addressing personal health issues, he would focus on his company, AJYNK Ltd.

"It has been a wonderful, challenging and long journey and I hope that the industry will remember all the good things I have done.

"It isn't easy to be at the top but I do hope people take the positives and move with it."

Despite his optimism, growers representative organisations had expressed disappointment with the lack of consultation on issues concerning them including two bills, the Sugar Industry Amendment Act and Sugar Cane Growers Fund Amendment Bill.

Growers had also raised serious concerns about the lack of assistance by the industry in the wake of Severe TC Winston.
