The National Training and Productivity Centre is hoping to develop more expertise here to be able to introduce more consultancy services in Fiji.

This is being hoped to be achieved through research, development and interaction.

NTPC acting director, Penitiko Taoi, made these comments while officiating the “Workshop on Management of Consultancy Activities of National Productivity Organisations (APOs)”.

This was held at the Tanoa International Hotel in Nadi yesterday.

This workshop is an important for NTPC, as well as for all other NPOs present.

“We all have a common goal of transforming the Asia –Pacific region into a prosperous and productive society,” Mr Taoi said.

“We can have very good, very different strategies, however, if not executed and monitored, it will surely derail your journey.

“Programmes and workshops as such surely add value and your organisation execute the defined strategies better.”

He said: “Consultancy plays an integral role for the organisation to function very well and be very productive in their respective natures of business.

The country was badly hit in February after TC Winston caused serious damage.

However, Mr Taoi said; “Most key tourism infrastructure survived the storm, and the impact on our forecast that the economy will expand by 3.5% a year on average in 2016-17 is likely to be modest.”

He said management consultants help businesses improve their performance and grow by solving problems and finding new and better ways of doing things.

“It’s not just in the private sector either, many firms work with public sector organisations to help develop their services and, where necessary, reduce costs and make savings,” he said.

He added the diversity and complexity of our Human Resources in meeting individual and organisational needs is now greater and challenging in finding the right fit to be more competitive and programs like this sustain business environment.

The five-day workshop is facilitated by Fiji National University’s NTPC and ends on Friday.
