Signing this morning in Vanuatu's capital, Port Vila, of the air agreement between Vanuatu and New Caledonia . The agreement was signed by Prime Minister Charlot Salwai and President Philippe Germain.
New Caledonia and Vanuatu signed Friday Friday morning in Port Vila an "agreement on extended air services" to "triple the capacity of the number of passengers," reports RRB.
The translation of this agreement entered into force is in particular the setting up of new rotations between New Caledonia and Vanuatu, by AirCalin and Air Vanuatu, and the possibility given to new companies to operate. In addition, Air Calédonie, the domestic airline, will also serve Vanuatu from New Caledonia, including Lifou in the Loyalty Islands. The interest of this agreement is mainly to develop tourism in Vanuatu since its New Caledonian neighbor is in second position in the ranking of its tourist markets. "But beyond that, the multiplication of the rotations can allow the development of the freight within the framework of the commercial agreements", specifies RRB.
Visiting Vanuatu as part of the annual joint commission, the President of the New Caledonian government, Philippe Germain, has also signed an envelope of nearly 320,000 euros for learning French in the Vanuatu archipelago.
