Australian Development Assistance to Vanuatu

Australia is an important economic partner for Vanuatu, providing the country with the majority of its tourists, foreign direct investment and aid.  Australian aid to Vanuatu promotes economic growth and poverty reduction by fostering job creation and income opportunities; promoting a healthy and productive population; and supporting safer and more resilient communities. 

A comprehensive overview of Australia’s aid to Vanuatu can be found on the Vanuatu Country Page of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade's website.
