It follows that Government consults regularly with FCEF and that representations made to the Government on a wide range of subjects are heard.
FCEF is asked to provide, on a regular annual or biannual basis, representatives from its members to fill vacancies on Boards of forty-eight Government majority and/or minority-owned entities, Boards, Councils and other statutory bodies, including the Fiji National Provident Fund Board, TPAF now NTPC Council and its Industry Advisory Councils, the Fiji Trade Union Advisory Committee, the ten Industry Wages Councils, the periodic Economic Summits, as well as numerous other ad hoc committees at the national level.
Council meetings are organized monthly. By attending these council meetings, you strengthen your networking base with Government Officials, Corporate Leaders, HR professionals, Lawyers (Labour and Employment Laws) across the country and have the opportunity in accessing comprehensive knowledge on Responsible Employment Practices, Sustainable Business Practices, Employment, Social Security, Occupational Safety and Health at workplace and generally talk the business language. There are lots of collaboration opportunities with large corporations and MSME’s.
