The French ambassador to Fiji, Gilles Montagnier would like to see more women involved in the field of automotives.
His remark comes after seeing that out of the 15 graduates of the Fiji National University advanced automotive electronic training course there was only one female participant.
“I’m surprised that she (Siteri Rasousou) was the only lady that graduated today. I wish there was more. In today’s time you don’t need to be like a 300 pound man to be able to do automotives. Technology has gone far to make it suitable for even the tiniest of women,” he said.

The new system has 10 electronic units that cater for the different sections in an automotive system and their distinctive functions as opposed to only one catering for the whole.
