‘Sustainable and resilient private sector’
9 June, 2023, 7:25 am
The Coalition Government envisions a sustainable and resilient private sector to deliver economic transformation.
Attorney-General and Minister for Justice, Siromi Turaga noted this in his address to participants at the 2023 Breakfast Session-2nd Productivity talks held at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva yesterday.
“It is most important that the Coalition Government works in genuine partnership with the private-sector, civil society organisations and other stakeholders to create jobs and raise our people’s income levels and living standards,” Mr Turaga said.
“To attain this objective, we will need a common ground of genuine policy dialogue, access to finance, streamlining regulations and improving the necessary infrastructure. We need to foster a culture that allows the private sector to flourish without any fear and bottlenecks,” he said.
He said Fiji needs to further develop its capabilities across all sectors of the economy, become increasingly versatile and build on recent successes.
He further said if Fiji is to remain competitive in the face of increasing globalisation, then it must become more productive, innovative, competitive and relevant in the global economy.
Mr Turaga acknowledged the Fiji National University, particularly the National Training and Productivity Centre, that provided training and promotion on all things to do with quality and productivity.
The sessions included presentations and question and answer sessions from various speakers speaking on the topic “The Way Forward- Repositioning Fiji’s Productivity movement and Productivity and its importance -Employers perspective”.
