The executive chair of the Bio-security Authority of Fiji Xavier Riyaz Khan says 2015 has been a challenging year, as they have been going through a lot of changes.
Khan says changes were made to the BAF board of directors with new appointments and an internal audit also revealed misconduct by some staff.
He says strategies have been implemented to further improve the services of BAF.
‘’Major milestones would be having our basic policies and procedures in place, having our pathways in order, internally having BAF structure in place, recruitment of more technical staff, recruitment of more BSO’s, opening of offices in maritime zone – for example in Taveuni and Labasa. So it terms of major operations we have achieved a lot’’._
Khan says in 2016 BAF will be focusing on capital projects.
