Nauru President Familiarises With Our Port Operations

The President of Nauru, Baron Waqa, visited the Port of Suva the past week.

The visit was to allow the President to familiarise himself with how the Port of Suva operates.

His visit was accompanied by his delegation, Presidential Council, Peter Jacob, Nauru High Commissioner, Jarden Keahas and secretary for Foreign Affairs, Mike Aroi.

Fiji Ports Corporation has developed strong ties with other Pacific island countries and various organisations like Pacific Maritime Transport Alliance.

Fiji Ports chief executive, Vajira Piyasena, said: “It is good they come in and see what we are doing.”

He said similarly officials of Tonga Ports had visited them previously and are following some of the things they are doing.

During this visit, the Fiji Ports Corporation also briefed Mr Waqa on the recent improvements in efficiency and productivity at the port.

Mr Piyasena highlighted this efficiency and improved productivity had been achieved through the public-private partnership between Ports Terminal Limited and Sri Lanka-based Aitken Spence.
