There is a demand for business-related training, especially at the community and local level, says Trade Minister Faiyaz Koya.
Speaking at the train-the-trainer workshop, Koya pointed out that in the last financial year, the ministry undertook 88 training sessions, reaching more than 2,250 Fijians.
He adds that these were mainly community trainings, as they know that is where more support is needed.
“We see this as an indication of the enthusiasm of Fijians. Fijians who want to own businesses, improve the well-being of their families and contribute to the growth of their community. “
This week, more than 20 trainers are participating in the workshop.
Koya says they are delighted to partner with the iTaukei Trust Fund Board and the Australian Government’s Market Development Facility.
He adds that such training sessions not only contribute to personal growth, but give entrepreneurs the advantage of improving their service delivery to micro, small and medium community enterprises and cooperative enterprises.
