The government of Vanuatu intents to ban the import of second hand Hyundai vans into the country.

The ban will take place starting next year Internal Affairs Minister, Alfred Maoh, has said. He noted that Hyundai vans are very popular in Port Vila due to low cost, but these machines produce a lot of air pollution, and also require often repairs and maintenance.

Reportedly, government is considering to ban import of all second hand buses, particular those produced in South Korea.

Alfred Maoh has also called for all drivers in Port Vila to cooperate with the Vanuatu Police Force and follow rules to avoid road accidents.
