Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Affairs Minister Winston Peters will arrive tomorrow in Port Vila as part of his visit for the Pacific Reset.
He has been in Solomon Islands on Tuesday and today leading a New Zealand delegation of government, business and Pacific representatives.
“The timing of the visit will enable the delegation to reaffirm our commitment to building deeper relationships in the Pacific that enable open and frank dialogue with our partners,” says Peters.
In both Vanuatu and Solomon Islands, New Zealand’s investments are targeted at building state capability, enhancing economic opportunities, and improving human development. The delegation’s visit will highlight work to improve gender equality and youth engagement, along with economic growth.
“Our visit to Vanuatu will be an opportunity to have high-level discussions, including on the Recognised Seasonal Employer (RSE) scheme, which has resulted in two-way economic benefits and strong links with ni-Vanuatu people,” Peters said before leaving Wellington for this visit.
The delegation returns Saturday 8 June.
