OPENING ADDRESS AT THE FIRST HIGH LEVEL FIJI GEOSPATIAL INFORMATION MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE
Good morning ladies and gentlemen.
Your presence here today clearly demonstrates that geospatial technology is increasingly becoming an important discipline nationally and globally.
Please allow me to brief this conference on the history of geospatial information in Fiji.
On the 5th February, 1991, Cabinet agreed that the Fiji Government adopt and approve the establishment of an appropriate organizational structure, the Fiji Land Information Council (FLIC) and the Fiji Land Information System (FLIS) Support Centre.
The great responsibility of moving from capturing geospatial information manually, to introducing standards and automations, marked milestones in the history of geospatial information in Fiji. Whilst the achievements have been recognized, appreciated and celebrated, the challenges are yet far ahead and it is now time for us to take a further step in our quest to put Fiji forward as a serious player in the GIS industry. more
