Fiji's government is to provide urgent technical assistance to Kiribati in the fields of Occupational Safety and Health and Labour Inspection.

The Minister for Labour, Filipe Bole, says Kiribati officials requested urgent technical assistance from Fiji's Ministry of Labour to undertake their Labour Reform agenda.

The Minister says Fiji has committed to undertake Kiribati's Labour Reform and Labour Inspection January next year and December 2013.

Mr Bole says in the spirit of regional cooperation the Government appreciates the urgent need to get the Labour Reform and Labour Inspection Project in Kiribati 'off the ground'.

An MOU will be signed by the Minister for Labour and his Kiribati counterpart.
