The Solomon Islands National Union of Workers (SINUW) will be sending three youth representatives to Apia in Samoa, for a Regional workshop on Youth Policy and Labor Migration.

In an interview, Mr. Tony Kagovai, the General Secretary for SINUW stated that the workshop is based on union related matters focusing on the youths.

According to Mr. Kagovai, the youths will participate in discussions taking into consideration the International Conventions signed by Solomon Islands and the Solomon Islands law.

He explains that the workshop will enable Solomon Islands to adapt policies to provide employees with decent working contracts and also taking into consideration gender equality and equal opportunities for all.

"After this conference the youth representatives will be able to participate as coordinators in Union related workshops and trainings. They will also be able to provide advice and implement their role in youth development in Solomon Islands and the Region," concludes Kagovai.

The Regional workshop will also enable the youth representatives of SICTU to network with other Unions within the Region to work towards a strengthened relationship.
