The Minister        

Mr. Praveen Kumar Bala

Minister for Infrastructure and Transport

The Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport

The Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport is accountable to the Minister for Infrastructure and Transport through the Permanent Secretary for the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport in the provision of sound advice that ensure the effective and efficient regulation, technical and economic of maritime transport within Fiji's Exclusive Economic Zone.

MSAF

The Maritime Safety Authority of Fiji (MSAF) is a commercial statutory authority established by the MSAF Decree 2009.  The establishment of MSAF was an essential part of the reform within the Fiji maritime industry.  The establishment of MSAF was the end of the Fiji Islands Maritime Safety Administration (FIMSA), and the dawning of a new era for maritime stakeholders.

The purpose of the reorganization of the government entity FIMSA to MSAF was to enable the entity to become more efficient and productive, more accountable, better organized, and deliver a good return on investment. To ensure relevant reporting and accountability, MSAF submits a three-year Corporate Plan (Strategic Plan), a Statement of Corporate Intent (Annual Corporate Plan), and annual Audited Accounts, to the Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, the Honorable Praveen Kumar Bala.

To raise the profile of maritime safety, security and marine environment protection obligations, MSAF is well progressed with the repeal of the Marine Act 1986 and related Regulations and the commencement of the Maritime Transport Decree 2013, the Ship Registration Decree 2013 and 34 related Regulations on the 1st January 2015.
