Minister Challenges, Invites Sector To Join In Cause

The Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Pio Tikoduadua yesterday challenged transport sector stakeholders on key focus for the ministry and invited them to be innovative in doing things.

This is in light of its befitting theme: Green Transport-Our Future to reflect on the type of transport systems and support efficiency needed in the country.

Mr Tikoduadua opened the two-day 13th Fiji National Transport Consultative Forum at the Novotel Convention Centre, in Lami.

Present were all industry stakeholders ranging from the tourism, shipping, energy, regulators in maritime and finance, the mineral, the bus and airline all involved in the transport sector.

“You and I have a responsibility, a duty to ensure that our decisions in this forum will work well for the future,” Mr Tikoduadua said.

“We must be forward-looking and make matured decision. We do not have to choose modern and efficient transport and the environment.”

The minister said these can work hand in hand through the provisions of the Bill of Rights of the 2013 Constitution said to guarantee ‘Right to Reasonable Access to Transportation’.

Mr Tikoduadua called for stakeholder support in moving forward.
