Fiji’s determination to keep the borders safe by ensuring government departments work closely with key counterparts, including Australia has been commended.

Australia’s Deputy High Commissioner to Fiji, Amy Crago, says the ability of different agencies to be able to operate in conjunction with each other is paramount to the safety of the people in Fiji.

She made the comments while addressing participants at the Border Management Workshop, which concluded in Lami yesterday.

The Australian Government, together with the National Security and Defence Council Secretariat co-organised the workshop.

It featured a number of scenarios that tested the interoperability of agencies and the application of enforcement jurisdiction and Laws of the Sea as it applies to Territorial Sea, Contiguous Zones, Archipelagic Waters and Exclusive Economic Zones.
