Fiji National Provident Fund has won the Category A Awards in The South Pacific Stock Exchange (SPSE) Annual Report competition awards night on Tuesday.

Category A Awards were for statutory authorities, government bodies and unlisted trusts.

The first runner-up for the category award were Reserve Bank of Fiji and Fiji Ports Corporation Limited and South Pacific Stock Exchange took the second runner up prize.

Speaking at the event SPSE chief executive Latileta Qoro said they were working towards improving the awards in the coming years.

“When it comes to development at which this award sits under, we are in the business of revamping, adding value as we go along,” Ms Qoro said.

She said come next year, the awards night would also be organised in a bigger way and the name would be decided in due course, but basically it would be a stock markets awards night.

She added the awards also encourage businesses.

“It is to encourage companies to be serious about transparency and disclosure to the stakeholders which is a core corporate governance principle,” she said.

“Through these awards, we are trying to inculcate that culture in Fiji.”
