Protocol important

PROTOCOL is an important aspect of diplomacy, Foreign Affairs permanent secretary Luke Daunivalu told the 35 participants who attended the Protocol Training workshop in Nasese on Wednesday.

Mr Daunivalu said the three-day workshop was designed to induct the participants on the discipline of official protocol and etiquette for diplomatic duties.

"It is underpinned by the noble principles of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations to which Fiji is a signatory," Mr Daunivalu said.

"It is important to understand this since it affects local customs and traditions, behaviour, etiquette, procedures, rules of courtesies in society and respect for precedence."

Mr Daunivalu said he hoped that at the end of the training, the participants would have gained working knowledge and the appropriate level of skills on protocol and etiquette.

"Fiji's foreign policy is to be a friend to all and enemy to none," he said.
