Students complete studies in Indonesia

Jakarta, Dec 17- Two Fijian students have this week successfully completed a two and half months training on Fisheries Human Resources Management in Indonesia.

Waisea Vusonitokalau and Marama Naigulevu received their certificates during their graduation ceremony at the Training Centre in Waiheru, Ambon in Maluku on December 15 2014.

The training was a result of the visit by the Melanesian Spearhead Group Foreign Ministers’ to Indonesia in January this year.
During the visit, the center based in eastern Indonesia was identified as a possible implementing agency for joint collaboration amongst MSG Countries and Indonesia.

Training and exchange of students in the fisheries sector were part of the agreed outcomes of the visit, which had resulted in the seven participants coming over to Indonesia to be part of the Training.

Four participants from the Solomon Islands and one from Vanuatu were also part of the group that represented MSG countries at the center.

The course comprised of Small Engine Repair, Aquaculture, Fisheries Product Processing and Fisheries Human Resources Management.

The participants thoroughly enjoyed their experience during their short stint at the center and hoped to put what they've learnt into practice upon their return.

They expressed their gratitude to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the training center for facilitating the course.
