"On the way to your future" is the slogan of the government, but also of the business creation and employment bus which was inaugurated in the presence of the two partners behind this project, namely the Employment Service (formerly Sefi) and the Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Services and Trades (CCISM). in the presence of the two partners at the origin of this project, namely the Employment Service (ex-Sefi) and the Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Services and Trades (CCISM). Based on the same principle as the CPS and EDT, this is a mobile counter that will travel to most of Tahiti's communes, as part of a local approach to decentralizing public services. Twelve stops are already planned around the island to allow users to carry out a multitude of procedures in a specially equipped area.

A bus to fight the battle

But why set up this project on the Presqu'île? The president of the country answered this question in his speech.

"It was important that the launch of this mobile bus be done here, in Taiarapu, where the employment pool is smaller than in the urban area, but where the potential for economic development around the blue economy, the green economy, but also tourism is important, and we must support it together. (...) Only 4.4% of job offers in Tahiti concern the rural area, while 34.9% of job seekers reside there," said Edouard Fritch, saying he was leading "a battle for employment.

The schedule of the bus tours will be available via the Facebook pages of the Employment Service and the CCISM.
