Seatransport was honoured to sponsor Silo Tavatuilagi on her recent trip to Canberra to attend the annual National Leadership Forum. Silo, an emerging young leader from Fiji had the opportunity to meet other young leaders from various cultural and religious backgrounds across Australia and the Pacific to discuss ideas, explore concepts of leadership and build networks. Over the 4 days, Silo spend time alongside Members of Parliament, leaders of business and other young leaders from various stages of life to consider who they are as leaders and how they can expand their leadership repertoire.
Seatransport’s Executive Chairman, Dr Stuart Ballantyne was recently in Fiji and in talks with the Fijian Government to support the country’s mission to revitalise the shipbuilding industry. The Fijian Government is considering the construction of two new undercover graving docks on the western side of Viti Levu. The Prime Minister, Mr Sitiveni Rabuka said “In it’s heyday, the Suva Shipyard was a significant source of skills training and specialisation for the nation - in particular for welders, carpenters, plumbers, electricians, draftsmen and administrators.”
Seatransport believe supporting youth and emerging young leaders, like Silo will lead to a prosperous future for Fiji.
