‘Christmas is a good time to reflect on what has transpired, learn from shortfalls and make commitments to do better or be a better person.’

 

Assistant Minister for Agriculture Viam Pillay when reminding Agriculture Department staff in the Northern Division, that Christmas was just around the corner, asked them to remember the occasion was not important to Christians only.

During his meeting with staff members, he explained that Christmas was also a time when those of different faiths could come together.

“It should be a time to make new friends and mend broken relationships, to be accommodating and to forgive,” Mr Pillay said.

“Christmas is a good time to reflect on what has transpired, learn from shortfalls and make commitments to do better or be a better person.

“I pray that despite all these calamities, we will find favour with Almighty God and be filled with his peace during this season of glad tidings.”

On behalf of the Government and senior management of the ministry Mr Pillay thanked all staff members for their tireless efforts and support in ensuring that service, with the best of their abilities, was delivered to the people of Fiji.

“As staff of the ministry you are constantly being asked to meet targets or even do more with less,”the Assistant Minister said.

“The challenging environment you all have had to work under serves as a valuable experience in order to deal with obstacles and in the process, push the boundaries of your abilities to find ways and means of doing business differently in order to satisfy the interests and demands of your clients.

“Let us build on our strengths while capitalising on lessons learnt from our shortfalls.Let’s take service delivery in the ministry to a higher level and put in place systems and processes that will boost overall efficiency.”
