20 SMEs from Rakiraki & Tavua – Attended the Business Continuity Plan Training
Fiji Business Disaster Resilience Council under the Fiji Commerce & Employers Federation and funding support from the USAID Climate Ready Project, continues to conduct training and advocacy around the country on the development of Business Continuity Plan (BCP) in Fiji for small and micro enterprises.
The BCP training held last week in Rakiraki and Tavua was attended by 20 SMEs for the first time who were encouraged to develop their own BCP. These SMEs were encouraged to develop their plans and identify how their businesses can keep its essential functions up and running during this cyclone season in Fiji or any other disruptions.
Also, they were guided on how they can modify their BCP to use in situations such as during the COVID-19 pandemic or other global crisis and natural disasters in the future.
The training is also carried out in both Itaukei & Hindi languages using the BCP Toolkit that was developed by the Pacific Island Private Sector Organisation. We are also using our Trainers around the country to assist in the training and development of the BCPs.
In the coming weeks the BCP training will be carried out in Labasa, Savusavu, Levuka and Navua.
