Closed Compact Report: Vanuatu Closed Compact | October 2020

Coordination and Partnerships

Following the results of the bidding process in February 2008, which indicated a shortfall of compact funds, the GoV solicited additional funding from the New Zealand AID. In June 2009, the GoV signed a funding agreement with New Zealand AID to provide NZD14 million (equivalent to US $9 million) in additional funding support which contributed to completing the construction and sealing of both roads. The continued commitment and partnership resulted in all major construction of the re-scoped project being completed five months ahead of the compact end date.
