Hard work pays off

PAU Daulako counts herself lucky to be one of the nine participants from Fiji who will attend a two-week training in Japan later this month.

The executive officer of the Department of Works office in the North said after being in the department for 15 years, the training in Japan was a reward for her hard work.

"This is the first international training I will receive and I am truly excited," Ms Daulako said.

"At the end of the day, your contributions to your employer are rewarded because you get to be selected for things like this.

"And I look forward to giving back to the department what I will learn during my training in Japan."

Funded by the Japan International Co-operation Agency, the training is part of the agency's effort in building human resource capabilities in Fiji and the Pacific.

The nine participants from Fiji will join eight more from Papua New Guinea, Niue, Vanuatu and Kiribati in Japan on May 20.

In opening the pre-departure orientation training in Suva yesterday, Public Service Commission permanent secretary Parmesh Chand reminded the participants they would represent Fiji in Japan.

He also emphasised the benefits of team learning as they set off together to learn as a team and to use their experience to reinforce and strengthen their abilities.
