We’re very excited to announced that The South Pacific WWII Museum Project, is now a recognized and supported project of the Vanuatu Government. We have now received a letter from DSPPAC (Department of Strategic Policy Planning & Aid Coordination) confirming the government’s support, along with a letter of recommendation from the Ministry of Justice & Community Services (MJCS). MJCS is the ministry responsible for the Vanuatu Cultural Centre, and is in charge of national interests in preserving the historical heritage of Vanuatu, which is precisely what the museum is setting out to achieve.
Official support by the Government of Vanuatu is very important to the museum project as it will enable official promotion of the project at a government level. It also reaffirms the Vanuatu Government’s enthusiasm for the project since granting us the land to build the museum on some years ago.
We’d like to thank the Hon. Ralph Regenvanu, Minister of Foreign Affairs and External Trades for his tireless support for the project and the extraordinary behind the scenes work of Museum Manager Alma Wensi, who assisted in bringing the agreement to fruition.
