Fiji, Vanuatu Re-Engage in Retired Teacher MOA

The Fiji Government has agreed with Vanuatu for the re-engagement of retired Fijian teachers for two years.

Minister for Employment, Productivity and Industrial Relations Semi Koroilavesau signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with the Vanuatu Minister for Education and Training, Jean Pierre Niurua, late last week.

According to Fiji Sun, the MOA to be renewed every two years allows retired Fijian volunteer teachers to be re-engaged in Vanuatu through the regional component of volunteer service.

Mr Koroilavesau said he appreciated Vanuatu government for choosing the Fijian Government as a   partner under the Fiji Volunteer Scheme.

“The Fijian Government supports the development of neighbouring countries assisting in human resources needs,” Mr Koroilavesau said.

“Fijians working in Pacific island countries contributed positively towards the enhancing of economic and social life.”

Fiji, he said, had sufficient capacity in areas of education, public administration, disaster management, peacekeeping, social protection and the environment.

“Having volunteers around the Pacific in three to five years, we can share skills with Pacific neighbours as part of engaging with the Pacific community,” he said.

“We’re committed to assisting those who request our help in areas of trade, investment, education, transportation, culture and people to people relationships,” he said.
