The Min­is­ter for Em­ploy­ment, Pro­duc­tiv­ity and In­dus­trial Re­la­tions Semi Koroilavesau yes­ter­day com­menced a week-long tour of the Lau Group to pro­mote over­seas sea­sonal em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties to those af­fected by Trop­i­cal Cy­clone

Win­ston. Mr Koroilavesau said the dev­as­ta­tion of TC Win­ston re­in­forced Gov­ern­ment’s re­cruit­ment fo­cus of over­seas sea­sonal work­ers to iso­lated ru­ral and mar­itime com­mu­ni­ties. “Gov­ern­ment’s pol­icy in­tent for re­cruit­ing un­em­ployed per­sons from iso­lated ru­ral and mar­itime com­mu­ni­ties is to al­le­vi­ate poverty.

“The trickle-down ef­fect of over­seas sea­sonal work will add value to ru­ral de­vel­op­ment through eco­nomic ac­tiv­ity and en­hance agri­cul­tural in­no­va­tion,” Mr Koroilavesau said.

He called on all able per­sons in the Lau Group to use this op­por­tu­nity and at­tend the Trade Show or­gan­ised by Unique Events Fiji to reg­is­ter their in­ter­est with the Min­istry. The 2016 Lau Is­lands Trade Show be­gins in Matuku then will pro­ceed to To­toya to­day, to­mor­row in Moala; Lakeba this Thurs­day; Ci­cia this Fri­day and will end in Vanu­a­bal­avu on Satur­day.
