Australia funding

Australia withholds funding from University of South Pacific

The ABC reportedĀ an independent investigation found exploitation of allowances and bonuses had cost the USP a significant amount of money over several years.

USP Vice-Chancellor Professor Pal Ahluwalia told a Fijian Parliamentary committee last month that the Australian government had not provided its annual funding of $US9.5 million.

It had only provided $US2.4m at the start of the year, he said.
