FIFTEEN schoolteachers from Fiji will leave for Vanuatu soon to teach in high schools.

This was revealed at the National Workshop on the Melanesian Spearhead Group (MSG) Skills Movement Scheme (SMS) in Suva this week.

Vanuatu's charge d'affaires Richard Balkonan said they had identified the schools that needed teachers.

"It is just a matter of getting the appropriate person across," he said.

Mr Balkonan said once the agreements were signed they would be able to establish the criteria for teachers who would be selected.

"We are still in the process of looking at what skills we need and in what areas," he said.

"That's one in identifying their needs but also identifying the people whose skills we can export to our country."

Mr Balkonan said other areas they were looking at were the aviation and tourism industries.
