The Per­ma­nent Sec­re­tary for Lo­cal Govern­ment, Hous­ing and En­vi­ron­ment, Paul Bay­ley ,has com­mended the tremen­dous work of the Fiji Me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal Ser­vice. To add more to that pride, the Fiji Me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal Ser­vice was yet again awarded the Fiji Busi­ness Ex­cel­lence Prize 2016.

This is their third con­sec­u­tive win for the same cat­e­gory in the Fiji Busi­ness Ex­cel­lence Awards. Mr Bay­ley said it was the work of the em­ploy­ees which needed to be com­mended and also the stake­hold­ers of the Fiji Me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal Ser­vice.

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.
