In an effort to improve water services to all Fijians, various representatives from the Water Authority and partner agencies today completed a two week seminar.
The overseas seminar was aimed at sharing development experience in China regarding water source analysis and lab practice in Fiji.
Ministry of Infrastructure Deputy Secretary, Iliesa Vonu says it also aims at improving management capacity and water resources between the two countries.
Vonu adds that the seminar also looks into areas of technology and engineering.
”It’s without doubt that training such as this, should fully support us and help us understand, expand and share knowledge of proper practice in undertaking such work in the laboratory and undertaking proper monitoring and efficient and effective delivery of services.”
