It’s been revealed that a lot of tertiary graduates are still without employment.

Labour Minister Jone Usamate says 1,000 degree holders are registered with the National Employment Centre (NEC).

And 10,000 more are certificate and diploma holders.

Usamate told a Radio Fiji One talk-back show this morning, a total of 31,000 people have registered with the NEC to date.

The NEC was set up to provide training and ensure people get employement.

  1. welcome to the ‘Shangri la’ that is the regime’s economy. Such miracle workers they are!! Train them all you like, you actually need employers willing to take them, ya pack of dummies….

  2. I suggest to the minister Usamate to accelerate re-training of graduands on resources development businesses. take for example the idle , vacant or underutilized land that can be developed by these young people as business ie. farm business.

    look at what we import and focus on them so we reduce imports and reduce leakages whilst we create employment.

    look at rice, potato, flour, farm feed, petroleum products,

    milk supply – we need more dairy farms and another dairy company in west Fiji

    can we produce our own flour from mixture of tavioka/uto/dalo/etc ?

    one expert was talking about bio fuel ?

    action , more action, more smart and appropriate actions mr minister and labour staff

    GOD BLESS OUR YOUNG GRADUANDS

  4. Ludicrous. Even after Usamate admits their incompetence in their inability to find employment for graduates, the solution today is to keep places of employment under the thumb

    Common sense alone would dictate that if you have an oversupply of a ‘product’, you work the other end of the spectrum to stimulate demand. Alas, even this is beyond their capabilities.

    Pio Tikoduadua has embarrassingly admitted to the public that their brouhaha about the 600 ‘National Toppers Scheme’ scholarships [http://home.tslb.com.fj/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=314&Itemid=282] is again a colossal failure in that awardee’s don’t want them. It is said that the fine print of the scholarships awards are not entirely conducive for those who deserve a leg up.

    Despite the stingy approach to Fiji citizens, the illegal and treasonous regime can still find a way to award scholarships to 15 Papua New Guinean nationals.

  5. @ Nagatalevu – That is just delaying the inevitable. Training them again for resource development business wont answer the problem. Who will give them the money and other market support to get them going once they know how to develop resources for commercial purpose? Self starters need support to kick them off and Fiji does not have that because all is spent on thugs cleaning guns in the barracks and the cronies who have been part of the daylight looting since Bainiamarama illegally seized power! There will be more and more unemployed graduands because Fiji’s development strategy under the regime is totally in the wrong direction! All Fiji’s trained people will exit the country because Bainimarama does not know what he is doing. Isn’t this happening already? While more and more Chinese enter the country to work, more and more locals find no work!! Understanding this simple reality will draw you to where it is all going wrong!

  6. Siding Substitute – This advancement adds instant curb appeal to your home.
    Home improvement will become increasingly needed for householders
    if they’re thinking about selling their apartment in future.
    Tailoring pillows to suit a teenager’s tastes is
    not that hard.
