WITH a vision to lay a platform for growth through smart management, the Ministry of Lands and Mineral Resources launched its Annual Corporate Plan (ACP) yesterday.
Acting permanent secretary Tevita Boseiwaqa said there were many outputs in the plan as targets to be achieved this year.
He said the ministry was going to lay a platform to achieve it by tapping all available opportunities within their reach.
"That is through staff capacity-building, pursuing relevant government reforms and policy initiatives," he said. "Keeping up with modern technologies, promoting a corporate culture and divisional empowerment through delegation of authority and staff strengthening."
Prime Minister and Lands Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama, in a foreword, said the 2013 plan was supported by the year's budget, outlining the key outputs of the ministry's two core departments, refined to reflect an enhanced working environment and networking relationship.
He said this was to secure and support other agencies, improve service delivery and increase achievements on government funded developments in land reform.
"The extraction of our mineral resources and the administration of our State leases are targeted to improve human development socially and economically which in many instances prove to be a very complex endeavour," he said. Commodore Bainimarama said the continued monitoring of development in the areas of minerals and State land management would be given high priority this year.
