PROACTIVITY, awareness and keeping an open eye for factors that affect everyone will help in setting out defined strategic goals, says Minister for Works, Transport and Public Utilities Captain Timoci Natuva.

Cpt Natuva was speaking at the opening of a strategic planning workshop held by the Maritime Safety Authority of Fiji (MSAF) early this week to establish the strategic direction.

"As stakeholders we must condone to be proactive and keep abreast of the international environment and look out for elements that affect us so that we are aware, and to enable us to define and ascertain our course of action," he said in a Ministry of Information statement.

He applauded the MSAF for its commitment in progressing government's interest in the global trend.

"I reiterate that it's important for MSAF to emphasise its core competencies and for the foreseeable future must continue to promote maritime safety, security, and protection of the marine environment," he said.

The MSAF will set goals and priorities for the next three years so that it can continue to position itself as an entity devoted to develop Fiji's maritime standards.
