TO achieve our goals and create a bright future, we must rely closely on the people and act in their interest, says Fiji’s Minister for Transport Jone Usamate.

Officiating at the National Transport Consultative Bi-Sector Forum today, he said the transport sector was important because it provided 8 per cent of Fiji’s Gross Domestic Product.

“Fiji’s transport sector is heavily reliant on fossil fuel and is now focused on sustainable transport in both the land and maritime sector,” Mr Usamate said.

“It will today give us another chance to revisit our national performance and discuss the best ways for us to bring changes that will create opportunities for all Fijians while nurturing and sustaining Fiji’s pristine environment.”

Meanwhile, more than 20 key areas were discussed and have been taken into consideration.
