Udu district community members have commended Government’s initiative in creating employment for the people of of Udu through the Seasonal Worker Scheme.

Tikina representative, Maikeli Sawaqa said this was a good opportunity for the members of the community and that they greatly appreciated the assistance.

“We’re appreciative to the Government for this worthy cause and for bringing us hope,” Mr Sawaqa said.

Minister for Employment Semi Koroilavesau said one of the intentions for recruiting unemployed persons from isolated rural areas and the maritime communities was to alleviate poverty.

“The flow on rural effect will add value to rural development through economic activity and enhance agricultural innovation,” said Mr Koroilavesau.

He said seasonal work required people who were dedicated with a positive attitude and a clear focus.

The ministerial team registered 15 workers from Udu on Tuesday for seasonal work and would continued with registrations in Nadogo and Cakaudrove yesterday.

Mr Koroilavesau has already visited the Northern Lau Group, Dawasamu, Nakorotubu, Nadarivatu, Kadavu, and the Lomaiviti Group for employment opportunities under the seasonal work programme.

The roadshow team will also meet with workers, employers and members of the community in Savusavu from 8.30am-9.30am today.
