Tongan worker

First Tongan to work in Australia under Pacific Labour Scheme

Miss Koso met with the Australian High Commission’s Second Secretary, Leon Braun Wednesday, who congratulated her and wished her all the best.

 Mr Braun, who manages Australia’s labour mobility programmes in Tonga said, “This is an exciting moment for both our countries.

“The Pacific Labour Scheme opens up great opportunities for Tongans to earn income and learn new skills in Australia for up to three years, and is helping Australian employers in a variety of industries overcome regional labour shortages.”
