WHAT started off as a fencing project for Government House and the front of Thurston Gardens has extended to the upgrade of the Public Service Commission offices.
PSC chairman Josefa Serulagilagi said the fencing project had not only beautified the commission's surrounding areas but it provided a sense of security to the employees who worked at Berkley Crescent.
Mr Serulagilagi received the hand-over certificate from the Chinese Ambassador to Fiji, Huang Yong, on Wednesday.
The certificate was for the completion of the fencing project of the PSC compound by China Railway No.5 (Group) Co Limited, which began works on October 15, 2011 and completed it seven months later — May 1 — this year.
Mr Serulagilagi said the fencing project was made possible following exchange of correspondence between representatives of the two governments.
He said the commission was committed towards strengthening its working partnership with the Chinese government.
He also expressed PSC's gratitude on the completion of the fencing and the commendable work of the China Railway Group.
The completion of the PSC fence cost about $1.5 million.
Mr Huang said the China-aided fencing project demonstrated their commitments to better co-operation with PSC in the future.
