Thus, the Council of Ministers has acted today on action 3 concerning the adoption of the characteristics of the TAPG.
The vast majority of the members of the commission recognized the need to adopt elements of the TAPG that allow to identify the sectors of activity and trades.

The ROMA classifies the professional activities carried out by individuals and the NAF classifies the economic activities carried out by companies that employ individuals. A restaurant (economic activity of restoration) can employ people who have trades related to the restoration, but also people who carry out other types of trades (a distributor, whose trade belongs to the commercial family “transport and logistics” ).
In contrast, a transport company (economic activity “transport and storage”) can hire a cook (work in the professional family “hotel, restaurant, tourism, leisure and entertainment”) if it wants to offer a catering service to its staff.
Taking into account the unanimous opinion of the CTEL on the need to have statistics to identify the sectors of activity and the professions in order to start the debate on the protection of the workplace, it was found that the TAPG contains the characteristics next:
· The sectors of activity according to the NAF standard,
· The description of the trades according to the ROMA coding.
This description will be broken down into three columns: Family of trades, ROME degree and specific title.
This presentation will provide a better understanding of the map of recruitment in French Polynesia.
