It’s now the third year they have received the prize. “Just like to acknowledge a very talented team which is recognised internationally. Many may not know that Fiji is one of only six regional meteorological services provided across the whole of the Asia Pacific,” added Mr Bayley. “The Government has invested significant amounts of money and I would also like to acknowledge the international partners. For example the Japanese Government which have invested about $30 million and makes FMS what it is today.” Mr Bayley acknowledged the Director for Fiji Meteorological Services, Ravind Kumar and spoke of him highly including of his work at the international level.
