Fiji has cemented its position as the hub of the region and is fast becoming technology and innovation-savvy as well.

This was highlighted by the Permanent Secretary for Industry, Trade and Tourism Mr. Shaheen Ali who officiated as Chief Guest at the ‘World Standards Day’ today.

The event, which was held at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva, holds the theme “Video Standards Create Global Stage”.

World Standards Day, which is celebrated internationally each year on 14 October, pays tribute to the collaborative efforts of the thousands of experts worldwide who develop the voluntary technical agreements that are published as International Standards.
