The Fijian Government is committed to investing in the future of this country, which are the youth so says Minister for Industry, Trade, Tourism, Lands and Mineral Resources, Faiyaz Siddiq Koya

The minister made the comment following his ministry’s commitment to partner with Film Fiji to host the 12th Kula Awards.

The Kula Awards provides the platform for students from around the country to showcase their talents and an opportunity for them to be trained in film production, acting and dancing.

“Fijian youth are talented, creative and innovative and they are ready to take up new challenges.

“The Kula dance and film competition provides a wonderful opportunity and platform for these creative and talented students,” Mr Koya said.

He further added that the Kula Awards provided the platform that harnessed the knowledge and technical skills within students.

“This would directly benefit the growth of the audio-visual industry in Fiji, which the Fijian Government has identified as a priority sector under the Fijian Trade Policy Framework.

“The Kula Awards is the first stepping stone for the students towards turning their hobbies to income generating opportunities in the audio-visual industry,” he said.

The minister has reiterated that their partnership with Film Fiji, compliments the Fijian Made-Buy Fijian campaign.

This is to raise the bar for young Fijian talents, who can contribute to the audio-visual sector, given the huge demand for professional talent by foreign film productions when movies are shot locally.
