Announcement on business closures to commemorate 40th Anniversary Celebrations

We would like to assure our business members that we are working hard behind the scenes on this matter, seeking clarification on the legality of the notice, as well as the conflicting instructions of the directive and will keep you updated accordingly.
We recognize that this is distressing to those of you affected and want to reiterate our strong stance behind you at this time. As a preparatory measure we do encourage you to write a letter to the Commissioner of Labour with your request to operate and your staff agreed to work on the dates you would like to operate.

The Vanuatu Business Resilience Council (VBRC) is seeking new members
The Vanuatu Business Resilience Council, hosted by the Vanuatu Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI), provides a coordination mechanism for local private sector actors to engage with government and key stakeholders on resilience building, response and recovery initiatives. The VBRC provides a platform for businesses to both manage impacts to themselves, and support government, civil society and development partners to build resilience and respond to disasters and emergency events by:
- Supporting businesses, particularly small and medium enterprises, to strengthen their resilience by providing training, tools and guidelines;
- Integrating the private sector into national climate change, disaster management and resilience plans and processes;
- Collectively lobbying for resources for business training and capacity building;
- Providing a single entry point and voice for the private sector on issues relating to climate change, disasters and resilience;
- Identifying and engaging local private sector capacities and resources to respond to emergencies, pre-position agreements in preparation for emergencies and match capacities to humanitarian needs before, during and after emergencies;
- Assist local private sector to identify and access climate change finance and technical assistance to build sustainable and resilient businesses.
The VBRC was established in late 2017 as a standing committee of the VCCI to promote and strengthen mobilisation of the local private sector to support the country to meet its climate change and disaster risk reduction objectives. The VBRC was launched in coordination with the Ministry of Climate Change (MoCC) and through the support of the UNDP Connecting Business Initiative (CBi) and Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). The VBRC was officially registered as a charitable association with the Vanuatu Financial Services Commission.
These voluntary appointments to the Executive are for a period of two years.
