The Vanuatu daily news Digest here brings you the full text of Prime Minister Natuman’s address to the General Assembly to the United Nations.
He congratulates the people of Fiji for their resilience and steadfastness and the newly elected PM for fulfilling his promise to the international community to return Fiji to a state of democracy. He draws the General Assembly’s attention to Vanuatu’s ongoing vulnerability, even after it has achieved its graduation from Least Developed Country status in December 2017. Small Island Developing States’ vulnerability remains undiminished, he declares. He reminds developed countries of their commitment to increase aid to 0.7% of GNP as agreed at the Monterrey Consensus and he gives his views on the post 2015 Development Agenda, the theme of the UN General Assembly this year.
