The National Vision, Mission and Goal are for "A peaceful and prosperous Fiji" and to do so, we must be able to "rebuild confidence, stability and economic growth". The principle of equitable sharing of the national wealth is now being undertaken through implementation of the Government Blue Print and Affirmative Action Plan. Together with good governance, it is also considered very important in achieving national security and stability. The private sector will remain as the main driving force of the economy. The expansion of the private sector will create further employment and increasing income foe economic growth. It has been also identified and established that there is sufficient indigenous skills available that could be further developed to foster and contribute to the target economic growth.


VISION

"To be the Best in the Pacific Island Countries in adding value to its Fish and Forest Resources"

The vision is based on the potential the Fisheries and Forest Sector have to contribute to the national Vision for "Prosperous and Peaceful Fiji". The two sectors have been given high expectation and will rise to the occasion to provide solutions to the "Peace, Unity and Multi-Racial Harmony" of the nation.

MISSION

The Ministry of Fisheries and Forest is a newly established Ministry of the Government. It was established with the aim to enhance both sectors visibility and streamline decision-making so that it is more responsive and proactive in facilitating the sustainable development of the fisheries and forest sector. This will be accomplished through strengthening its capacity building, institutional and infrastructure development. Greater emphasis is now placed on the value adding of fisheries and forest products and effective participation of resource owners in the industries. We will expand and strengthen our activities within the above areas, as personnel and finances are adequate and opportunities arise, so that our overall goal growth targets are realized.
