THE Construction Industry Council (CIC) has set ambitious plans for 2018 including a major construction industry conference to be held later in the year.

And with the boom in the construction sector stemming from post Tropical Cyclone Winston, the council is looking to establish its own fully functional secretariat.

While these plans are in the pipeline, the council has launched its new logo that will be introduced to its members as its first 2018 meeting in Suva today.

CIC President Gordon Jenkins, in a statement, said the stylized CIC logo was part of a significant effort by the council to make it even more relevant to its members.

"Among this year's initiatives is to work even more closely with Government to address ongoing critical issues like licensing for all sectors of the industry and a greater emphasis on training," said Mr Jenkins.

At CIC's last meeting before the close of 2017, members heard from the head of the Ministry of Economy's Construction Implementation Unit (CIU), Mr Mohammed Shah about the opportunities for partnership with Government.

Mr Shah had said at the meeting that Government was interested in seeing a strong CIC and that it would like to work closely with the Council in improving the country's key infrastructure at all levels.

The Construction Industry Council comprise all the major construction enterprises in the country, including builders, sub-contractors, architects, engineers, quantity surveyors, hardware suppliers, developers, project managers and key Government representatives.
