GO with an open mind and grasp all you can learn to strengthen the leadership in the public service.

Acting deputy secretary at the Prime Ministers office Naipote Katonitabua conveyed this message to participants who will attend the China Executive Leadership Academy Pudong this year.

Mr Katonitabua was a part of a 45-member senior official delegation that was trained at the academy last year.

"There are different areas of responsibilities in China that is similar to that of Fiji," he said.

"Although the magnitude of China is bigger than Fiji, a small nation such as ours can learn so much from how they conduct their leadership and relationship amongst themselves and other international nations."

He said the training was an eye-opener and he learnt significant lessons that had helped him in his professional career.
