THE Ministry of Defence, National Security and Immigration yesterday launched its annual corporate plan for this year, highlighting several issues that need to be addressed.

In launching the ACP 2014, minister Joketani Cokanasiga said the ministry would continue to pursue the development of legal and operational frameworks to combat terrorism, cyber crime and unlawful migration.

"An important focus of the ministry will be the continued facilitation of deployments of our RFMF and police personnel, for peacekeeping and peace building missions abroad," he said.

The ACP 2014 highlighted 18 outputs, which will be monitored by the Strategic Framework for Change Co-ordinating Office.

The 18 outputs will be achieved by using 15 key performance indicators (KPI) and the KPIs will need to deliver seven government requirements which are national security as its core deliverable, public sector reforms, financial services, poverty alleviation, environmental sustainability, gender mainstreaming and women in development and commitment to social wellbeing.

"The delivery of our overarching outcomes, in particular our core deliverable of national security, will be and will always pose enormous challenges to the ministry," he said.

"However, I have every confidence in the ministry's staff, from the executive level, right down to the government wage earners, that will be committed, be team players and over the next 12 months, to achieve what has been set out in this year's ACP."
