Boost for the private sector

THE Fiji Commerce and Employers Federation (FCEF) with the Fiji Hotel and Tourism Association (FHTA) jointly embarked on a project which cost them about $2million.

A groundbreaking ceremony for the new FCEF building in Suva was held yesterday.

The building, which was planned for several years, will house fully fledged training facilities, a secretariat for both organisations, and space for young entrepreneurs and incubators for business start-ups.

According to FCEF president Nesbitt Hazelman, the investment is all about growing the Fijian economy.

FCEF chairman Howard Politini says it’s a special occasion for the federation.

ILO Office for Pacific Island Countries director David Lamotte said it would be a three-storey building comprising 900sq metres of office space on the ground on second floor and basement and car park underneath.

FHTA president Dixon Seeto said the project was a momentous occasion.

He said they had done a lot together and the project was a testimony.
