Jone Usamate advised employees at the Labasa depot in Vatunibale to use the newly commissioned conference and training room to help northerners.

Yesterday the Minister of Infrastructure commissioned the $80,000 fully air-conditioned room that bears his name.

The room would be used by staff from the Fiji Roads Authority, Energy Fiji Limited, Water Authority of Fiji and Ministry of Infrastructure to hold meetings, conferences and training.

He encouraged employees to use and share their knowledge and skills with others so they can grow as individuals and as a team to help improve service delivery.

“Make sure you provide the things that people in the North need, whether you are a civil servant or work for a private organization,” Mr Usamate said.

“I hope many meaningful decisions will take place and actions will be taken by you and the people who work under you.”

He said on April 2 he turned 60 and seven family members were named in his honor.

“It’s the first time a building has been named after me and I’m glad it’s being used for a purpose where learning will take place,” he said.

He said some names were given to preserve history and he hoped the hall would be used to ease people’s burdens.
