The Legal Aid Commission is building capacity of its corporate staff to increase productivity and enhance service delivery.

The Commission held its 2016 Legal Aid National Corporate Staff Training seminar at the Intercontinental Fiji Golf and Spa Resort at Natadola last week.

Minister for Industry, Trade and Tourism Faiyaz Siddiq Koya said:

The Legal Aid Commission is a very crucial agency of the Fijian Government that provides the much needed legal support to the Fijians who are not able to secure legal counsel or advise due to financial constraints.

The Commission had a budget increase in the grant allocation for 2016.

“You are the most important assets of Legal Aid Commission, hence your contribution to this Corporate Training Seminar is very important to take the organisation forward. I must reiterate that no idea, whether big or small, is unimportant, I request you all to actively participate in this seminar for the betterment of the organisation.”

The Commission plans to open new offices in rural areas around the country including Kadavu, Rotuma, and Nabouwalu.

“And with offices ready to be opened in Levuka and Taveuni, Legal Aid Commission literally has the largest reach in Fiji,” Koya said.
