The Fiji National Provident Fund and the Ministry of Forestry signed a memorandum of understanding to work together in enabling the exchange of information for mutually beneficial partnership.
The signing is part of an ongoing efforts to collaborate more with employers and key stakeholders to ensure that members interest is protected.
The Ministry of Forestry will provide data of its licensees captured through their data collection system to FNPF.
Permanent Secretary for the ministry Pene Baleinabuli says the partnership will help the ministry ensure compliance with companies who obtain license such as saw-millers, logging companies and treatment plants.
Businesses will now be required to provide compliance letters for applying and renewing of licenses.
FNPF Chief Executive Officer Jaoji Koroi says a lot can be achieved if FNPF works together with stakeholders to achieve a common goal.
Over one thousand people are employed in the logging industry.
