COGA Interacts with High Level Officials from the Ministry of Employment, Immigration and Civil Status

The Committee on Government Assurances chaired by Hon Gervais Henrie met with high level officials of the Ministry of Employment, Immigration and Civil Status, headed by Minister Myriam Thelemaque on Monday this week, to keep abreast of commitments made by the Ministry during the budget session late last year.

Amongst the issues examined by the Committee were the amendments to legislations such as the Employment Act and the Industrial Relations Act; projects being undertaken by the Ministry such as the Information System and Digitalization of Civil Status and also learnt of financial and human resources’ constraints impeding the speedy implementation of many activities of the Ministry.

Through this interactive session Members of the Committee gained better insight into the work of the Ministry and also came to an agreement on the completion dates of these promises.

Other Members of the Committee who were also present were, Hon Clive Roucou, Hon Sandy Arrisol, Hon Norbert Loizeau, Hon Sylvanne Lemiel and Hon Wilbert Herminie.
