It is important to have dialogues with the Fijian government, trade unions and the employer to resolve current problems says International Labour Organisation (ILO) director country office for South Pacific Island Countries, David Lamotte.

This comes after a high profiled delegation from the ILO met the Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama, Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, trade unions and various other stakeholders regarding the issues surrounding the new Essential National Industries (Employment) Decree 2011.

Lamotte said the delegation had a successful meeting with the Fijian government and relevant stakeholders during their three day talks.

He confirmed a full report of their discussions has been handed to the director general of ILO Juan Somavia who will be making further recommendations on Fiji’s current situation.

He said the director general is keen that these three parties can actually resolve the type of problems that exist in Fiji.

Lamotte said he had some concerns and he wanted the ILO to be constructive so he sent the mission to Fiji.

He stressed ILO wants to work with Tripartite Agreement which includes dialogues with government, workers and employers.
