Pro Vice Chancellor of TVET, Dr Isimeli Tagicakiverata, says the forum will foster collaboration and share innovative practices aligned to the TVET programs with the evolving needs of the labour market.

Tagicakiverata adds that this will allow Fiji’s workforce to equip themselves with the necessary skills to help in future economic growth.
