The team of of­fi­cials from the New Zealand Gov­ern­ment will ar­rive this week to re­cruit the sec­ond batch of Fi­jian car­pen­ters for the Christchurch re­build­ing ef­forts. The Min­is­ter for Em­ploy­ment, Pro­duc­tiv­ity and In­dus­trial Re­la­tions Semi Koroilavesau high­lighted that this de­vel­op­ment re­flected the suc­cess of the work car­ried out by the first batch of car­pen­ters. “I wish to laud the gov­ern­ment of New Zealand through its Min­istry of Busi­ness, In­no­va­tion and Em­ploy­ment and the Can­ter­bury Pa­cific Trust for their co-or­di­na­tion and sup­port of the pro­gramme,” Mr Koroilavesau said. “Thank you for hav­ing con­fi­dence in our peo­ple and for re­al­is­ing their po­ten­tial and skills which is paramount to the ob­jec­tives of our em­ploy­mentcre­ation re­form which has con­trib­uted sig­nif­i­cantly to the bet­ter­ment of each and ev­ery worker, their fam­i­lies and Fiji as a whole.” The Min­is­ter also ex­pressed his ap­pre­ci­a­tion to the first batch of car­pen­ters for their good work ethics and ded­i­ca­tion. He high­lighted that the stan­dard that was set by the first batch has given ‘green light’ to the em­ploy­ers and the New Zealand gov­ern­ment for more re­cruit­ment.

“That is the type of re­tort that the Fi­jian Gov­ern­ment would like to re­ceive from other Fi­jian work­ers re­cruited for over­seas em­ploy­ment through gov­ern­ment to gov­ern­ment bi­lat­eral agree­ments be­tween Fiji, New Zealand and Aus­tralia,” the Min­is­ter added. The New Zealand team will be in the coun­try for a week to con­duct as­sess­ments and meet­ing with rel­e­vant agen­cies for this re­cruit­ment. Source: DEPTFO News
