Six Fijian Carpenters Impress NZ Government
Two considered for foreman roles
The six Fijian pilot carpenters that were deployed to New Zealand earlier this month for the rebuilding of Christchurch were commended by their employer, Pacific Trust Canterbury and the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE), New Zealand (NZ) for their good work ethics, dedication and meeting NZ standards. This scheme was arranged through partnership between the Ministry of Employment, Fiji and the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment of New Zealand.
The Fijian carpenters received positive remarks from MBIE and Pacific Trust officials just after completing one month employment which is an astonishing achievement and also signifies the firm assessment and selection made by both Governments. Due to their hard work and dedication, two of the team members are being considered for foreman positions which speaks highly of the calibre of our pilot workers. The Fijian Government through the Minister for Industry, Trade and Tourism, Faiyaz Siddiq Koya who visited the pilot workers on Wednesday, emphasised to the Canterbury pilot workers the importance of bringing back home the skills acquired and sharing it with other workers be it through trainings or entrepreneurship. Minister Koya was accompanied by the Permanent Secretary for Employment Salaseini Daunabuna and director National Employment Centre during his visitation to the Fijian pilot Carpenters in Canterbury, New Zealand.
