Newly appointed Chairperson of the Fijian Broadcasting Corporation - Isoa Kaloumaira

Former Fiji TV Chairman Isoa Kaloumaira has been appointed as the new Chairperson of Fijian Broadcasting Corporation Limited as Ajay Bhai Amrit has resigned following his appointment as Fiji's High Commissioner to Australia.

Permanent Secretary for Civil Service and Public Enterprise, Parmesh Chand says Kaloumaira’s extensive experience in directorial roles and his prestigious executive background, including positions such as CEO of iTaukei Trust Fund and director positions at New World Supermarket and Fijian Holdings Limited, make him a valuable addition to FBC's leadership team.

Chand says during Amrit's tenure as Chairperson, FBC achieved remarkable milestones in its financial performance within a remarkably short period of time.

He says one notable accomplishment during Amrit's leadership was the significant reduction in staff turnover, which decreased from an annual rate of 18 percent in previous years to 12 percent in 2023 year-to-date.

Chand says Amrit and the Board made a significant contribution by reducing the government PSB fee by 40 percent, resulting in annual savings of over $4 million for taxpayers and citizens alike.

He adds this success has positioned the company on a trajectory toward establishing a self-sustaining commercial operation while continuing to fulfill its government Public Service Broadcasting obligations.
