We have an important announcement in relation to the postponement of tomorrow’s construction industry consultation, and an update from PVMC on road and drainage maintenance in and around Port Vila. Read more below. We also wanted to share with you an inspiring video of women in business, to bring you joy on this sunny Tuesday afternoon. We hope you enjoy.
Consultation meeting with owners of the Construction Industry tomorrow is postponed
The Department of Labour (DoL) meeting with owners of businesses in the construction industry scheduled for tomorrow has been postponed.
The DoL has not yet confirmed another date for the consultation meeting. In the meantime, DoL is encouraging you to read through the final draft of the Vanuatu SoP for OHS in Construction, and make comments in preparation for the rescheduled meeting.

Port Vila town roads and drainage maintenance
Following a recently signed agreement between MIPU and PVMC, both parties have agreed on the pressing need to clean all drainage lines in and around Port Vila, due to flooding and to safeguard our important road assets.
After the experiences of flooding due to tropical cyclone Dovi last week, MIPU and PWD coordinated with the Shelter Cluster to collect infrastructure information and conduct damage assessments in order to provide humanitarian support to the affected population. This response has delayed the starting date of the community work on our roads initially scheduled to begin on the 16th February 2022.
PWD will begin works on roads and drainage maintenance works around the CBD area this week and will continue this for the next two weeks.
If you have any queries about these works, please contact Nathan Bani at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 22888.
Phoenix Women in Business Program coming to end
We’re so proud of what these women have achieved after attending business financial management training, leadership training, and business life skills coaching and mentoring under the Phoenix Women in Business Project. Implemented by the Vanuatu Business Resilience Council in partnership with VCCI and supported by UN Women and Women’s Peace & Humanitarian Fund, the project is impacting positively on the sustainability of female owned SMEs post COVID-19.
