E-mail Print PDF

05 January 2011. The Staff of the Ministry of Information & Communication (MIC) welcomed today the Prime Minister, who is also their new Minister, to their offices at the Fasi Free Wesleyan Church Building, at about 3 pm today.

Lord Tu'ivakano, was greeted by the CEO, Paula Ma'u and together they signed four copies of the "Hand-Over Note" which outlined some of the basic policy, legislative, regulatory and activities relating to operations of the divisions within the Ministry, from the outgoing Minister, Hon. ‘Eseta Fusitu'a to our new Minister, the Prime Minister.

The Prime Minister acknowledged the achievements of such a small Ministry with only 16 Staff members but collected last year more than T$5 million in revenue, much, much more than the target amount allocated for them to collect during 2009. He added that this should be the best example to most, if not all, of the other Ministries.

He met with each one during refreshments for an afternoon tea and urged the staff to continue on generating more revenue and discussed some of the major developments costing millions of Pa'anga, like the Tonga Cable Limited, a submarine fibre optic link with Fiji which the MIC has negotiated.
