Bringing it home - Temporary labour migration in the Pacific

Seasonal work in New Zealand picking fruit provides not only jobs for people from Pacific Island countries, but also opportunities to return home with new skills. The seasonal migration program has been designed together with trade unions, employers and the government to ensure that both migrating workers and farmers benefit. This and other successful labour migration schemes are being discussed at the International Conference on Small Island Developing States taking place in Samoa from September 1-4, 2014.
