Vanuatu Distant Region gets a postal service at last
At Vanuatu, the Torres archipelago will at last have a post office and a Western Union connection. They will be built on Hiu Iceland, the largest of the northernmost archipelago of Torba County. Christopher Emelee, Torres-born agricultural secretary, has concluded an accord with the Vanuatu Post for the two important institutions on the Isle of Hiu.
He says they will connect Torres with the outside and Vanuatu, and he says it's one of the reason why administration officials didn't want to work there. There have been past campaigning for the Torres as part of the Solomon Isles because they are nearer than Port Vila.

Foremen work for an integrative region
In Samoa this weekend, SENIOR sales representatives from the region will gather to debate ways of extending business activity and co-ordinating policy to jointly reach the joint economical and policy objectives needed to enhance territorial commercial inclusion. "The Blue Pacific story, approved by the Forum Leader in 2017, provides a transformational framework for these discussions," said Secretary General Meg Taylor.
The Secretariat, at the invitation of the Heads of State and Government, has made it easier to establish a Committee on the Rules of Origin of Pacific Island States (PICTA ROC), which will convene today to examine the conditions laid down in the Convention and suggest amendments which will give a products the designation of "originating products" and make them eligible for PICTA market entry under the Convention.
Its current members are Fiji, Niue, Samoa, Tuvalu and Vanuatu. Afterwards, on the afternoons of July 10, a discussion between the PICTA contracting parties on opinions and a path to the PICTA ROC resolution as well as on ways to further deepen provincialism through the introduction of PICTA Trade in Service Protocol and PICTA Temporary Movement of Natural Persons Protocol will be made possible.
PICTA Parties currently acting under the Convention are the Cook Islands, Fiji, Niue, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tuvalu, Vanuatu and Kiribati. High-level officials from sixteen Pacific ACP (PACP) states will also meet during the PACP meeting on 10 July 2018 to discuss ways of further enhancing commercial and industrial ties with the European Union.
It will also discuss the prospects and priority areas for the ACP post-Cotonou negotiation mandates in the areas of commerce, investments, industrialisation and the provision of value-added tax benefits, together with an outlook for the comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement. For the first a new Forum member, the Forum follows on 11 July, and for the first case in history comprises members from France-Polynesia and New Caledonia.
Full participation will be discussed with the eighteen Forum members, who are expected to attend, on joint action to deepen intra-Forum commerce and promote industrial inclusion in line with the framework for Pacific regionalism and the Blue-Pacific Tale, as well as on possible monitoring mechanism and monitoring indicator for transposition of this.
It will also review a way forward for a new WHO Global Strategy on Aid for Trade since its expiry in 2017 and review the governance framework of the Pacific Trade & Invest Network (PT&I). They will be held at the Tanoa Tusitala Hotel in Apia, Samoa, ending with a PACER Plus meeting for signatories from July 12-13.
