In this podcast of the report launch, Jesse Doyle, Social Protection Economist at the World Bank, presents the report, examining the costs and benefits of the scheme for Pacific households, and workers experiences, and making recommendations for reform. This is followed by comments from Senator Claire Moore, Shadow Minister for International Development and the Pacific; Michael Fryszer, Managing Director of Connect Group; Melissa Denning, Assistant Labour Attache at the Timor-Leste Embassy; and Michel Kerf, World Bank’s Country Director for PNG & the Pacific Islands.
