More human interaction needed says President Waqa

The Pacific Skills Summit currently underway in Fiji aims to address the skills gap in the region.

Nauru President and Chair of the Pacific Island Forum, Baron Waqa says with the growth of the technological sector, human interaction must be maintained.

“Climate change and technological advancement for Pacific people, but when we talk about next generation skills, we are not just talking about technological advances and technical solutions such as the cloud computing, robotics and artificial intelligence, important as they are.”

“ We are also talking about those skills that will allow us to flourish in our full humanity,” Waqa said.

The two-day summit at the University of the South Pacific’s Laucala campus in Suva ends today.
