The Minister also emphasized that the two leaders will have an open-door policy, which means that staff can discuss and address any issues with them at any given time.

She further states that the staff serves more than 70 percent of Fijians, and she has even received feedback from stakeholders, such as Westpac Bank Nausori Branch.

The Minister commended the staff for going the extra mile to assist social welfare recipients at Westpac Bank to open their new bank accounts and even ensure that their allowances are paid.

Tabuya described the staff as unsung heroes and pleaded with them to continue the great work.
