According to Pacific migration experts, Australia and New Zealand should consider giving preferential migration and work opportunities to people from Kiribati and Tuvalu
February 9, 2015 Jobs are hard to find in all Pacific countries but, due to their remoteness and high transport costs, Kiribati and Tuvalu have not been able to build a tourism or manufacturing industry, and they do not have any mineral resources.
The nations have been enthusiastic participants in seasonal work schemes in Australia and New Zealand.
And they have gained vital income by sending their trained seafarers overseas.
Sophia Kagan of the International Labour Organisation in Suva argues Kiribati and Tuvalu are a special case, and as a result should get better access to the region's two developed countries.
