Mayors Workshop on RSE Issues


All 19 Mayors from the Gilbert Group participated in the Recognized Seasonal Employment (RSE) Workshop organized by the Ministry of Labour and Human Resources Development and held at the MTC Compound from 16-19 October, 2012.

The main aim of the workshop was to inform the Mayors, 80% of whom were newly elected to the office earlier in the month, about RSE and at the same time discuss issues related to recruitment, work conditions, exit polices and others.

The workshop was also attended by Clerks to the Island  Councils. The High Level workshop was opened by the Beretitenti H.E Anote Tong who told the Mayors that Councils have very important roles to play in the RSE particularly with regards to the preparation of people from their islands who are selected to the scheme.

KiLGA Partners with the Local Government Association of Queensland (LGAQ) of Australia


KiLGA and the Local Government of Queensland have developed closer ties with the attendance of the latter’s Annual Conference by the Chairperson and Executive Officer of KiLGA, from 23-25 October, 2012 in Brisbane, Australia.

The attendance of the KiLGA’s delegates was possible with the financial assistance from CLGF and the LGAQ.

The main benefits from the attendance of the LGAQ conference are firstly, both associations have developed a more positive partnership, with the LGAQ providing a mentoring role to KiLGA. Secondly, KiLGA’s delegation was able to discuss issues related to joining LGAQ’s Local Buy scheme.

An MOU is being negotiated on the matter, which when signed by the two parties, will allow KiLGA and its member Councils to have access to quality goods at reasonable prices from suppliers in Australia and New Zealand.
