NZ Employers Commend Solomon Islands Seasonal Workers

New Zealand Employers Commends Solomon Islands Seasonal Workers

Solomon Islands Minister for Foreign Affairs and External Trade, Hon Clay Forau was pleased to hear positive feed backs and comments from various Employers in New Zealand on the work output and performances of Solomon Islands nationals employed under the Recognized Seasonal Employers Scheme.

‘I am pleased as well as the Government to hear that our workers are doing well in New Zealand’, says Minister Forau. Our workers are settling in well and are adjusting to the New Zealand culture and environment.

On Monday, the Hon Minister and his delegation were in Nelson on New Zealand’s South Island, where they met with two of the employers and both have commended highly Solomon Islands seasonal workers.

‘This is positive news for the country and our seasonal workers and those intending to be recruited under the Recognized Seasonal Employers Scheme (RSE) in New Zealand in the future, must maintain that professionalism and dedication in their work in New Zealand’, added Minister Forau. They must continue to perform to the best of their ability and to the expectation of their employers, stated Minister Forau.

‘The success of our participation in the RSE in New Zealand depends entirely on the trust, good behavior, professionalism and dedication by our citizens working under the scheme in New Zealand,’ added Minister Forau.

On Tuesday morning in Wellington, Hon Minister Forau, also paid a courtesy call on the New Zealand Minister for Immigration, Hon Michael Woodhouse and the Deputy Chief Executive, Immigration Group, Mr Nigel Bickie, both of whom have also spoke highly of Solomon Islands seasonal workers and their overall contribution to the RSE for both New Zealand and Solomon Islands.

The Hon Minister and delegation are currently in Napier where they will meet more Solomon Islands Seasonal Workers and their Employers.

The Hon Minister’s delegation includes officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and External Trade as well as Labor and Immigration Divisions.

Hope For Nature: A New Deal For The Commons

Joseph Cederwall on The Dig: The disruption and destruction of the interconnected biodiversity of Earth is the most serious challenge humanity has ever faced. This is an ecosystem emergency on an extinction scale. It is also a serious threat to the inherent rights of the diversity of non-human life, ecosystems and human Cultures on Earth to exist and thrive. The current global paradigm is devastating life everywhere by disrupting vital “ecosystem services” like the food, water, and climate regulation systems that both humanity and biodiversity depend on in an interconnected balance. It is increasingly clear that the primary driver of this crisis is the limiting and infectious worldview around land and resource use so central to the global capitalist system. To fully understand the biodiversity crisis and explore what comes next, it is necessary to address this mind-virus at the heart of our modern civilisation – the dominion worldview. More>>
