THE board and management of the Maritime Safety Authority of Fiji (MSAF) are committed to stamping out corrupt practices.
This was the message as the authority hosted stakeholders in the maritime industry to a workshop on good governance.
The two-day workshop which ended yesterday covered principles of good governance, role of statutory authorities, corruption, transparency and disclosure and the rights of stakeholders.
"The Good Governance Workshop is a critical part of the authority's reorganisation process that began in 2009," said MSAF chief executive officer Neale Slack.
"The MSAF Good Governance Workshop is also a reflection of government's continued effort to instill among civil servants and statutory authorities alike, including MSAF the value and importance of practising good governance in the work environment," Mr Slack said.
MSAF board chairman Raj Sharma said he hoped board members and management would be enlightened and appreciative of how good governance helped in the management of their tasks.
With the introduction of the MSAF whistleblower policy, the authority is expected to ensure its operations are transparent.
