Fiji’s joint construction industry body is organising a taskfroce to address issues affecting the industry.

Construction Industry Council (CIC) president Gordon Jenkins says the taskforce will create the platform to address the resolutions and outcomes of CIC Conference held in June this year.

The announcement was made during the CIC’s monthly meeting on Wednesday (July 25).

Mr Jenkins said the inaugral conference provided a forum for industry players to debate on  relevant issues affecting the industry.

Over the two days of deliberations the delegates agreed on a number of resolutions that addressed the main concerns of the industry.

“CIC promised to move towards implementation of the resolutions over the next year. We believe that the taskforces would be the best way to forward this process,” said Mr. Jenkins.

The resolutions included training, licensing, cyclone certification, standards and dispute resolution.

Members of the task force will soon be announced.

Guest speaker Troy Irwin, programme manager for the Fiji Higher Education Commission (FHEC), told CIC members at the meeting of the its ongoing activities towards improving higher education in the country.

In this regard, Mr Irwin said the commission looked forward to working with the CIC to achieve some of its goals.
