W-Contractors and representatives from the Mount Vema Ministry of Work, and The Ministry of National Development and Land Maintenance are discussing how to implement marketing strategies to attract sufficient numbers of migrant workers to meet construction deadlines.
One option is to award contracts only to companies who can bring their own people. This option has the support of the Vema Seamount Authority who have realised much earlier of the setbacks that could be caused by the need of sufficient manpower, so he attempted to push for deals with the governments especially of India and South Africa, to temporarily enable their people to travel to Mount Vema for work with special arrangements, that could benefit all parts.
Mount Vema would provide the employment which could be of great benefit for the country sending the workers especially in terms of revenues from remittance that the sending country could benefit from. But because several attempts made before by the Vema Seamount Authority to initiate talks have led to nothing so far.
To meet deadlines, Mount Vema companies have started looking elsewhere to recruit manpower especially from countries where governments have been more willing to work with the Vema Seamount Territory. This is one of the reasons the Bank of Mount Vema was authorised to engage in currency swaps to enable employers and job seekers in other countries to take advantage of the opportunities created by Mount Vema.
The new strategy being discussed, will encourage mass migration to fill vacancies in sectors that will support the work force during construction in underwater works, construction, assembling of pre-fabricated structures, accommodation management, catering, healthcare, entertainment, retail and including basic works such as cleaning.
