Geneva, Switzerland - Fiji’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations in Geneva, Ambassador Nazhat Shameem Khan yesterday (Friday 26th June 2020) virtually presented to the Director General of the ILO, Mr Guy Ryder, two instruments of Fiji’s ratification of Convention 190 - Violence and Harassment Convention 2019 and Protocol 2002 to the Occupational Safety and Health Convention of 1981.

While presenting Fiji’s instruments of ratification, Ambassador Khan highlighted the Fijian Government`s continued commitment to improve labour conditions and to apply best practices aligned to international standards.

Fiji’s ratification is consistent with Fiji’s Human Rights Council membership and is timely and we remain committed to addressing real challenges such as violence, harassment, and intimidation in the world of work particularly during this pandemic.

Fiji also noted the inclusivity of the Convention, which purports to protect and empower all who are subject of bullying and harassment at work including women.

Whilst receiving Fiji’s instruments of ratification, the Director General of the ILO Mr Guy Ryder, congratulated the Fijian Governments’ commitment and leadership in various aspects including improving labour standards despite the hurdles posed by the pandemic.

“Fiji’s ratification signaled to the world that this Convention needs to be ratified quickly and widely. In light of the pandemic, ILO knows from evidence that gender-based violence increased globally and this ratification works towards addressing those, so I thank Fiji for this,” Director General Ryder said.

Further, the Director General reiterated that Fiji’s ratification is critical in enabling the Convention to enter into force, “Your ratification is most crucial and matters as it draws the Convention to meeting the minimum threshold to enter into force.”

The ILO Director General wished Fiji well in the domestication of the Convention 190 and the Protocol 2002 and the ILO stands ready to work collaboratively with the Fijian Government in its implementations.

On Friday 29th May, 2020 the Parliament of the Republic of Fiji approved the ratification of Convention 190 – Violence and Harassment Convention 2019 and Protocol 2002 to the Occupational Safety and Health Convention on 1981.

Several members of Public Accounts Committee of the Fijian Parliament visiting Wellington this week took advantage of a visit to the Wellington City Council’s Southern Landfill yesterday to glean a few ideas for waste management in Fiji. This included the Hon. Alexander O’Connor, Assistant Minister for Health, Ratu Suliano Matanitobua, Opposition parliamentarian and Ms. Priya Chand, Parliamentary Secretary who were accompanied by the Fiji High Commission New Zealand staff.

The Southern landfill is an impressive setup particularly as it focuses on recycling and minimising the damage to the environment at the landfill.

 

Other remarkable features of the landfill were its gas collection, electricity regeneration, green waste mulching and water table management. The Hon. O’Connor, an engineer by profession, was particularly impressed and intends to develop a few ideas for the Fijian Government to consider.

 

The PAC members were invited to attend the Pacific PAC training seminar in Wellington facilitated by UNDP from the 12th to the 13th December.

The PAC members, including Deputy Chair, Hon. Mohammed Dean, MP, were hosted to afternoon tea at the Fiji Chancery.  It was an opportunity for the Parliamentarians to meet the Locally Engaged Staff at the Mission and also update the staff on the work and concerns of the Public A
