Vanuatu: Compact Signed and Moving Ahead

On March 2, the MCC signed a 5-year, $65.69 million compact with Vanuatu. The grant will focus on rehabilitating transportation infrastructure through eleven infrastructure projects aimed at roads, warehouses, wharves and an airstrip, extending into rural areas. The Compact will also include institutional strengthening efforts and policy reform initiatives such as maintenance equipment, maintenance schemes and the introduction of user fees.
