PM ANNOUNCES CHRISTMAS BONUS FOR FIJI PINE STAFF
Prime Minister Hon. Voreqe Bainimarama today announced a $1, 000 bonus each for the 653 staff of Fiji Pine Group.
The total bonus payment to the staff amount to $653, 000.
In announcing the bonus at the Fiji Pine Group’s Drasa office today, the Head of Government thanked the staff for their efforts over the years.
“You’ve achieved record profits these past six years, and you’ve repaid over 60 million dollars in loans and you’ve built a foundation for sustained growth – investing over $70m dollars in strategic upgrades. You’ve welcomed a new Drasa Factory – a state-of- the-art timber facility; the Wariki wood chipping facility; and the brand new Vislanda
“Working alongside our landowners, you’ve made this industry profitable and, more importantly, you’ve kept sustainability at the core of all of Fiji Pine’s development.”
He urged staff to use the bonus wisely towards their families and their children this festive season.
“With your continued support, your hard work, and your dedication, it’s clearer now than ever before that the best for all of us is yet to come. Our brightest days are still ahead; may 2018 be filled with the same resolution that has led us here today,” PM Bainimarama said.
He also held a talanoa session with the staff.
