The President, Major General (Ret’d) Jioji Konousi Konrote yesterday commissioned two of Fiji’s Head of Missions who will be taking up their postings overseas next month.

Fiji’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Jitoko Tikolevu and Ambassador to the United Arab Emirates, Kamlesh Prakash took their oath of allegiance and oath of execution at the State House yesterday.

The two diplomats, who now join the Fiji diplomatic corps, are from the financial and education sector.

Prior to his appointment Mr Tikolevu was the chief executive officer of the Fiji Revenue and Customs Authority (FRCA) and has worked his way up the ladder since he began his stint at the Ministry of Commerce as the licensing clerk in 1981.

He joined the FRCA in 2002 as the senior policy and research officer in 2002 after having acquired a Bachelor of Arts in Business Studies from University of the South Pacific and a Masters in Tax (Honours) from the University of Auckland.

Mr Prakash has over 25 years of work experience in the education field as a tutor and lecturer in Economics as well as a training manager in organisations such as USP and the Fiji Trade Union Congress.

The former director of the National Training and Productivity Centre (NTPC) of the Fiji National University (FNU) has 10 years of international experience as he worked with the Asian Productivity Organisation headquartered in Tokyo.

Mr Prakash has a BA in Economics/Politics from the USP and a Master of Economics from Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi, India.
