CITREC CHAIR TO SOLOMONS NEXT WEEK
Canadian International Training and Education Corp (CITREC) Chairman Ashwant Dwivedi will be visiting Solomon Islands next week to advance talks and an action plan on Canada’s Labour Mobility Arrangement with the Guadalcanal Province.
During a Government Conference in Vancouver Canada last night, Chairman Dwivedi announced that he will be travelling to Solomon Islands to hold meetings with the Government of Guadalcanal and Solomon Islands Central Government to help set the “Canadian Labour Mobility Protocol” between Guadalcanal Province and Canada into action.
Chairman Dwivedi said that on top of the Agenda would be discussion on the Remittances Commission and the work that the commission will engage in to help propel the program that will result in direct economic benefit to the Guadalcanal Province.
Meanwhile, a statement from CITREC said the seven-member commission has been established with Chairman Dwivedi announcing four members of the Commission are from Canada.
In October last year a high-powered Guadalcanal Government delegation visited Canada and entered into a Labour Mobility Agreement with the Province of Saskatchewan.
Saskatchewan is Canada’s Oil and Grain rich province, which employs thousands of foreign workers.
SIBC News understands, the provincial government delegation was led by deputy Premier Hon. Rollen Seleso and assembly member Anthony Veke.
