Update: 2:32PM NATIONAL heritage site managers from around the region met in Suva this morning for a regional training course on world heritage sites management in the Pacific.

This course, funded by the Australian government through the UNESCO/Australian Funds-in-Trust, will be the first of its kind for the region.

It is organised by the Pacific Heritage Hub and the UNESCO Office in Apia, Samoa in cooperation with the University of the South Pacific.

Facilitator Dr Anita Smith, an archaeologist and a senior lecturer at Deakin University in Australia, said this was the first training on management of heritage sites not only here in Fiji but in the region as well.
