A TWO-DAY workshop that starts tomorrow in Suva is expected to equip local businesses with the knowledge on business continuity planning, the role of first responders, and how climate variability affects businesses.

The United States Government, in partnership with the Fiji Business Disaster Resilience Council and the Fiji Commerce and Employers Federation, will launch the training program for businesses in Suva tomorrow.

The training aims to better prepare businesses for natural disasters and is part of the United States Agency for International Development's (USAID) Ready project, which is strengthening the environmental and disaster resilience of Pacific Island countries.

A media release from the US Embassy said the 35 participants would be drawn from several major businesses.

Participants would also learn about government services and disaster management plans.
