Australian Navy vessels join Vanuatu for 40th Independence celebrations

Australia’s High Commissioner, Sarah de Zoeten, said the Australian Government was honoured to join its ni-Vanuatu family and friends in celebrating this momentous occasion, especially during these challenging times.

“Australia stands with the people of Vanuatu as they mark this momentous occasion and we are very proud to be able to contribute to the celebrations,”Ms de Zoeten said.

Whilst in Vanuatu, the crew will deliver Australian-funded equipment to assist the country’s Tropical Cyclone Harold recovery efforts and COVID-19 preparedness.
