Pacific Fisheries officials are the target group for a new leadership training initiative launched by the Pacific Community Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC).

SPC Director General Dr. Colin Tukuitonga says if all goes well, the Pacific Fisheries Leadership program will be extended to health and education officials. 

"This is about leadership development and equipping and supporting people to be more effective as leaders of the fisheries sector who are charged with managing an important resource in all of our member countries."

New Zealand aid is funding the training, targeting 125 Pacific fisheries officers over the next five years.
