Directors of statutory bodies have been urged to adopt more comprehensive approach to risk management, diversity and change.
Minister for Industry, Trade and Tourism Premila Kumar called on statutory directors during a Fiji Directors course currently to emphasize on the need for skilled people to drive their organizations forward.
Kumar says this course is a first that’s been organized by her Ministry in partnership with the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD).
“It will further examine the board composition. We all agree when it comes to board composition having the right mix of skills, knowledge and experience is needed to ensure that a statutory board carries out its activities effectively.”
The training is facilitated by David Evans and Jenny Seeto from the AICD which provides the type of targeted training needed by Senior Executives of Statutory Boards and governments to realize their responsibilities and broaden their horizons.
