Vanuatu Government’s Economic Stimulus Package
We would like to share with you today the Prime Minister’s overview of the Vanuatu Government’s Economic Stimulus Package. Please find it attached here. We are continuing to work closely with the Government on this and focus has moved now to the detail of how these initiatives will be made available to you, the employers and employees. Please stay connected via the VCCI Facebook page to be updated quickly and access information on this and other matters.
VCCI to provide important employers service via Government 119 Hotline
One of the initiatives we are launching to help you in these complex times is a dedicated support person via the Government’s 119 Hotline. The Chamber will be providing staff who can talk you through any Department of Labour directives that may affect you, and how you can access assistance via the economic stimulus package. We hope to announce a start to this service by the end of the week.
Business Continuity Planning support
VCCI/VBRC continue to offer support to businesses in working through their continuity planning. These plans help you plan for a disruption or change to your business and can help create ways to keep your essential services available.
We can also help you adjust your budget to the current environment.
Please contact our trainer Irene Titek to organize a one on one training session by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or calling Irene on 561 0549
Misinformation on Facebook
VCCI would like to bring to your attention a notice dated 27 March 2020 circulating on social media from the Department of Labour, purporting to be based on recommendations made by the VCCI. This notice does not reflect the findings of our survey, nor the list of recommendations made by VCCI to the Department of Labour.
We look forward to working with the Commissioner of Labour on a more reflective list of suggestions in light of the now public Government economic stimulus package and what this means for employers.
State of Emergency update
We would like to make you aware of further clarifications provided by the government on the State of Emergency in relation to curfews. Please click here to download the updated notice.
