Vanuatu daily news digest | 6 September 2015

In yesterday’s Daily Post former Reserve Bank Governor, Odo Tevi, the country’s well respected UN Ambassador, said people in Vanuatu should not fear our graduation out of Least Developing Country status (LDC) to that of developing country. Tevi said Vanuatu has another three years to await, but governments must "build capacity within the government mechanism to access assistance through training of manpower and through legislative strengthening." He said the delay was largely due to cyclone Pam. Samoa graduated. Vanuatu did not. He was addressing the members of the Vanuatu Economic Society. (Daily Post)
