Investment Fiji and FICAC are working together to educate investment, trade and export advisors to be fully aware of the anti-corruption laws.
The two organizations conducted training sessions this week to assist local exporters to fully understand the evolving nature of corrupt practices.
Investment Fiji’s Chief Executive, Godo Mueller- Teut says the training on anti-corruption laws was timely for the organization as it will assist in attracting foreign direct investments and assist local exporters.
Tuet says the objective is to ensure the organization understands the risks and work well within the boundaries of the laws, either internally or while engaging with foreign investors and exporters.
The Chief Executive adds initiatives as such, empowers the advisors and will go a long way in addressing the issue of corruption in the country.
In its bid to educate public office holders on the evolving nature of corruption, FICAC has been actively engaging with government ministries and departments such as Investment Fiji.
FICAC’s Principal Corruption Prevention Officer, Arti Naidu says this is part of FICAC’s awareness programs.
Naidu says people are inventing new ideas to cheat the system and that is why it is important that education awareness programs are conducted regularly.
