NEW ZEALAND WELCOMES MIGRANT HOTEL WORKERS

 NEW Zealand welcomes migrant hotel workers to address the current job shortages in its booming tourism industry .

This is according to  St. Benedict Career Training  International Inc. (SBCTII), an educational training program provider in the Philippines offering post-graduate courses for those pursuing future careers in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Japan, Italy and the United Kingdom.

The group cited reports from Tourism  New Zealand (TNZ) which said the country expects an influx of some 45,000 additional visitors, as additional  government funds amounting to some $125 million investments beef up its tourism sector. Thus, more hotel workers are needed. 
 
In some parts of the country New Zealand's multi-billion dollar tourism industry relies heavily on overseas workers - particularly during peak season.  
 
Many of the available jobs are in areas with low unemployment or where there are no New Zealanders with suitable skills, even as unemployment is increasing.
