Business Forum & Trade Expo
Morning Site Visit + Airport Drop
This forum is a great opportunity to get up to date information on investment, trade, business opportunities and current events in Vanuatu. This year, for the first time, this forum will be held in Port Vila, Vanuatu. The Major Sponsor for this event is the Vanuatu Investment Promotion Authority (VIPA).
Vanuatu is an archipelagic nation of about 80 islands some 2000 kilometres to the northeast of Brisbane at similar latitude to Cairns in North Queensland. The population of Vanuatu is approximately 200,000. Port Vila, on the island of Efate, is the capital.
Vanuatu's economy is driven largely by tourism and construction. Business has rebounded from the effects of Cyclone Pam on 13 March 2015. There are opportunities for Australian business to participate through investment and trading in tourism and tourism-related services sectors (wholesale and retail trade, hotels and restaurants, and transport and communication) and in agriculture. There are potential opportunities in donor funded infrastructure development. A privately developed fibre-optic cable is now operational and the associated industry zone is creating new opportunities in the IT and related sectors.
