Pacific to supply seasonal workers for Australia

Samoa signs MOU to join seasonal workers scheme

Australia's fruit and vegetable growers will be able to employ seasonal workers from the Pacific region and East Timor from the middle of 2012.

But they will have to show they can't find local workers at harvest time before accessing a $21.7 million program.

The program, announced today by the federal government, follows a successful pilot scheme.

The government will also conduct a small-scale, three-year trial with the tourism industry.



Cook Islands could access larger source of seabed minerals

A change in legislation will allow the Cook Islands to extend its borders and in turn benefit from a larger source of seabed minerals.

The Territorial Sea and Exclusive Economic Zone Amendment Bill will enable more accurate mapping of the country’s slice of ocean, with the use of better technology.

It has been estimated that the country’s exclusive economic zone, which spans about two million square kilometres of ocean, could receive an additional 400,000 square kilometres as a result.
