Total (Fiji) celebrated its 10th year of operation here in Fiji on Friday. It was praised for its efforts and support.

Speaking at the 10th year anniversary, Minister for Industry, Trade, Tourism and Mineral Resources, Faiyaz Koya, highlighted  the company’s  operation in Fiji.

“Total (Fiji) Limited has truly come a long way and tonight’s celebrations clearly portray its 10 good successful business years in Fiji,” Mr Koya said.

“Total (Fiji) Limited has become one of the most recognised and trusted and trusted names in Fiji’s energy industry.”

The Minister also thanked Total (Fiji) Limited for extending a helping hand after the category 5 Tropical Cyclone Winston hit Fiji earlier this year.

“In responding to the Government’s call for support after the devastation caused by Tropical Cyclone Winston earlier this year, the managing director of Total (Fiji) Limited presented $100,000 worth of fuel towards DISMAC’s Cyclone Relief Support,” he said.

“This evidently indicated how Total had its customers, the community, the people and the country at heart.

“It is encouraging to note that the industry players are taking keen interest in conservation and sustainable management of resources, which augurs well with the Fijian Government’s Green Growth Framework.’

Mr Koya also said that his Ministry was working towards improving fuel standards and thank Total for being part of the working group.

Total (Fiji) Limited managing director, Martin McCarthy said total had invested a lot in Fiji and this would continue.

“The Business has changed a bit since 2006 as we had 17 operating service stations but we have 35 stations operating now,” Mr McCarthy said.

“We have invested around F$20 million and we will be looking at possible investment opportunities we can carry out here on the islands as we have done elsewhere in the world.
