PLANS, execution, customer service and improvement are important to remain relevant and sustainable.

Fiji’s Minister for Employment, Productivity and Industrial Relations Jone Usamate made this comment when he launched the ministry’s five-year development and operational plan yesterday, saying managing risks was a critical part of their planning to enable resilience and allow them to bounce back quickly when challenged with risks.

“I hope that both the five-year strategic plan and the operational plan would become a platform for effective sustainable planning not only for planning but for execution and for improvements,” Mr Usamate said.

He said both those plans had been aligned with the Government’s 20-year strategic development plan with anticipation of the global labour market dynamics over the next five years.

The minister said the operational plan would see more emphasis not only towards data collection but converting that data into information and knowledge, which could be used to review the policies and improve the performance.
