The Businesses of Salafai Association (B.O.S.A) launched their first Strategic Plan on Friday last week.
The Minister of Commerce, Industry and Labour, LautafiFio Purcell, delivered the keynote address.
A strategic plan, he said, provides a sense of direction and outlines measurable goals.
“It can be a tool that is useful for guiding day-to-day decisions and also for evaluating progress and changing approaches when moving forward.”
He urged members of the Association to make good use of the Plan.
The President of B.O.S.A, Pipi Tevita Tariu, said the launch is an important step for the Association.
“This is the beginning of more exciting things for our association. Another challenge we have been facing is the fact that we don’t have our own office to operate our work.
“We keep some our stuff at the S.B.E.C’s office, but that will change once we move to our own office next month.”
Pipi said the plan has been designed to be practical, not to just sit and gather dust on a table.
