THE protection of our vulnerable and pristine marine environment remains the commitment of the Maritime Safety Authority of Fiji, says Colonel Timoci Natuva.

The Transport Minister opened the MSAF Stakeholder Draft Regulations workshop at the Holiday Inn in Suva on Monday.

"Your participation in this forum as representatives of the maritime industry of Fiji is important for the following reasons- to utilise your expertise in your respective professions in the review of the draft marine regulations," Mr Natuva said.

"To incorporate constructive comments and recommendations on the draft regulations that will benefit not only the maritime sector but the nation as a whole and to ensure stakeholder participation in the drafting of the marine regulations that will bring about a sense of ownership by maritime stakeholders of the maritime legislations."

Mr Natuva said the two-day workshop was an opportunity for maritime experts to discuss and recommend improvements to draft regulations.
