Tongan delegation in Suva.

The Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission (FCCC) in continuing efforts to strengthen regional networking is hosting a three member Tongan dwelegation at its head office in Suva.

The delegates comprise of staff members from the Enforcement and Compliance Division under the Ministry of Commerce, Consumer, Trade, Innovation and Labour, Tonga.

The attachment has been initiated and funded by the Tongan Ministry.

Anometa Ungoungo, looks into Consumer Complaints and Inputting Database, Aloisia Latupauu Fakaanga is from the Pricing,

Weights and Measures section while Mele Muimui Liu Mei Tupou Tovi is an expert in Mediation and also provides legal advice and collates evidence for prosecution.

The delegation will be with FCCC for one week from Monday, March 5 to Friday, March 9 during which they will be attached with the Complaints and Compliance team, Price Control and Monitoring team along with the Legal team.

This will allow them to understudy the key roles of FCCC and ascertain how best they can apply the knowledge gained in their line of work upon their return.

In order to ensure effective learning takes place, FCCC will engage the delegation in complaints handling processes, market surveys and price checks.

Rather than limiting one’s ability to learning by listening, FCCC works towards ensuring learning by doing.

FCCC sees such attachments as an opportunity to enhance the capacity of the Enforcement and Compliance Division under the Ministry of Commerce, Consumer, Trade, Innovation and Labour, Tonga.

It is envisaged that the weeklong attachment will greatly enhance the knowledge of the delegates allowing them to improve their existing measures in Tonga.

FCCC has hosted delegates from other Pacific island countries in the past including Solomon Islands, Kiribati, Tuvalu, Samoa and Vanuatu.

FCCC has been advocating for a regional network of regulations and such bilateral exchanges showcase the demand for continued regional co-operation
