China’s Ambassador in Vanuatu, Xie Bohau, has officially handed over five million US dollars in post-cyclone relief assistance to the local government.
The Chinese relief supplies, including food and tents and other materials have been collected at the headquarters of the Vanuatu Mobile Force, now ready to be dispatched.
The package, which follows earlier Chinese relief assistance for Vanuatu after Cyclone Pam struck last month, is to go towards the second stage of emergency relief.
Mr Xie says China stands ready to assist Vanuatu until it recovers from Cyclone Pam.
“We are awaiting the assessment by Vanuatu government on the reconstruction my government will continue to provide assistance to Vanuatu in the future, especially on the reconstruction of the country.”
Vanuatu government has already indicated that reconstruction of school building is the priority.
