THE region's largest tertiary education provider plans to work with the Fiji Human Resource Institute to see if there could be a Pacific Human Resource Institute.

University of the South Pacific vice-chancellor Professor Rajesh Chandra made the comment at a cheque handover to the FHRI president Kameli Batiweti at the USP's Workforce Development Training Unit this week.

The USP's Pacific Technical and Further Education (Pacific TAFE) showed its support with the sponsorship of $10,000 towards the FHRI national convention which will be held from October 27-28.

A statement from USP said Prof Chandra commented on the importance of developing a strong partnership to ensure that the industry, profession and USP worked together towards a common aim.

"USP is committed to making sure that the relationship we cultivate with the professional bodies and industries allow us to promote work placements that people in the industry have which helps to guide our curriculum."

Mr Batiweti said the FHRI was grateful for the fine gesture made by USP towards FHRI that provided leadership in the human resources function.

He said the Pacific TAFE was more in tune with the workforce and was pleased that the sponsorship marked a concrete partnership with FHRI and all of these were aligned with direct and concrete ways to the University's Strategic Plan (2013-2018).
