Vanuatu Thanks Us For Aid In Tech

The Ministry of Education and Training in Vanuatu has thanked the Fijian Ministry of Education for rendering its expertise in formulating the policy on Open VEMIS which is an electronic database for students, teachers and schools.

Director General of MOET, Vanuatu, Jesse Dick Joe, has openly acknowledged the efforts of the Government particularly the Education Ministry in fostering true regional cooperation between Fiji and Vanuatu by guiding the Education Ministry in Vanuatu towards e governance.

Mr Joe thanked the Permanent Secretary for Education, Iowane Tiko, and the Minister for Education Mahendra Reddy for allowing Director Corporate Services, Releshni Karan to supervise and lend her expertise in policy making for Vanuatu.

The Open VEMIS Policy is modelled on the current FEMIS (Fiji Education Management Information System) that has digitalised records and has up to date and current information on all schools, teachers, students and ministry staff in Fiji.

The Ministry of Education in Fiji is one of the first ministries in the Pacific to have a complete electronic database to keep its records in the form of FEMIS.

Mr Reddy said Fiji was the Pacific leader in education and was willing to assist other island nations in any way it could given the availability of resources.

FEMIS can feed current data into the system from any location.

The Education Ministry is data-driven and relies on FEMIS to inform planning and policy.

The collaboration in policy making between Fiji and Vanuatu education ministries has been viewed as a step towards promoting regional friendship and technical exchange of expertise.

Mr Reddy said the regional co-operation was made possible through the funding provided by VSEP in Vanuatu and AQEP in Fiji.
