THE FIJIAN LABOUR MINISTRY has still not issued a statement on an agreement between a recruitment agency and individuals in Papua New Guinea to hire 800 Fijians to work in that country.
The Fiji High Commission in PNG conducted investigations and has raised some questions about the agreement.
Fiji’s High Commissioner to PNG, Romanu Tikotikoca, who is in Suva, has met with the Ministry of Labour to discuss the issue.
Labour Minister Jone Usumate said he’s not in a position to release a statement about the matter just yet.
But FBC News has learned that a recruitment agency has started registering Fijians for employment in PNG and is charging them a $100 processing fee.
Meanwhile, PNG Attitude readers have flooded the blog with comments and letters opposing the scheme.
