“This year’s theme provides our members to take the lead and take charge especially to demonstrate the expertise within the business communities. ,” he said.

“The 2015 congress will provide an opportunity to hear from others around the globe.”

“This year, we have speakers from the business community, fincance, NGO’s and you must have noted that our key note speaker is the Prime Minister on the first day and on the second day is the attorney General.”

 

A platform

Westpac Fiji General Manager, Adrian Hughes, said the congress provides the platform for dynamic dialogue and networking.

Vodafone Fiji director Corporate & Business Marketing, Ronald Prasad, said: “The forum has a great mix of local and international speakers.
