SIX Japanese volunteers are in Fiji to work with various government ministries for the next two years.

The volunteers, part of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), paid a courtesy call on PSC permanent secretary Parmesh Chand this week.

An Information Ministry statement said the volunteers visited Mr Chand as part of their orientation program before taking up their assignments.

Mr Chand said the public service was grateful to have a long-term association with JICA and the volunteer program enriched and strengthened Fiji and Japan's bilateral relations.

"They have worked in most parts of Fiji, mostly in rural areas, and have made a huge difference in the lives of our people. The skills they have left behind are still evident in these locations," Mr Chand said.

He said the volunteers were identified and selected in response to requests by various ministries, departments and agencies based on their work plans and priorities.

The volunteers will work with education, local government, agriculture and youth ministries and the FNU's National Training and Productivity Centre at Nabua.
