Strategic planning

THE Fiji Fashion Council's strategic plan is focused on five major areas, including securing funds and financial resources, building membership, capacity building, research and development, communication and policy development.

Council chairperson Naziah Ali said the council hoped the strategic plan would pave the way for the growth of the emerging industry.

Ms Ali said the aim was to stimulate interest and engagement as well as development of creative individuals and harness those individuals to meet global standards and market expectations.

"Once we have finalised the draft strategic plan within the board level, members of the council will be sent copies for comments and feedback," Ms Ali said.

"There will be a follow-up meeting to get the final endorsement from members followed by a public launch and announcement of the strategic plan."

She said in the next two years, council members hoped to see an improvement in the standard and quality of garments as well as an increase in interest from aspiring designers.

"Following the initial strategic plan workshop with the wider stakeholders, the board members regrouped to narrow down the focus and expectations of its members and the way forward," she explained.
