BALANCE, integrity, credibility and what we stand for remains.

This was the message shared by the general manager, Hank Arts, as the oldest newspaper in Fiji, The Fiji Times, celebrated it's 145th anniversary at its headquarters in Suva yesterday.

Mr Arts highlighted a number of recent achievements and thanked staff members for their efforts.

He briefly spoke about the history of the company and about the place it holds in the development of our country.

For staff members, from the journalists to the drivers, it was a day to reflect and celebrate on the many achievements the company has made over the years.

Staff members were treated to a special lunch at the company's main conference room and shared a special birthday cake.

Mr Arts also thanked the directors of the company for their support.

"We talk about it often. We are the current caretakers of a special publication."

He said staff members had lost none of the passion and professionalism of The Fiji Times over the years.

He thanked all departments for what he termed as a "great team effort".

"The election will keep us busy, but all plans are in place," he said.
