WELLINGTON, New Zealand (RNZI, April 14) - The publisher of
Vanuatu’s independent trading post newspaper has announced the publication
will make history by becoming "The Vanuatu Daily Post," beginning next
month.

The former Briton Marc Neil Jones, now a naturalized citizen,
said the Daily Post will be published Tuesday to Saturday.

Jones said they’ve been publishing three times a week for a
couple of years, and the time is now ripe to become a daily paper.

"There's enough news locally and internationally to warrant
a daily, and although the economy is not particularly brilliant here, I think
that we could get ourselves established and grow with the economy," He
said. "And it would also give us the opportunity to carry some more
positive news. I feel that we do need to balance things more and going daily
will give us that opportunity."

Jones has already taken over as editor of the newspaper from
long time editor Len Garae in order to have a more hands-on grip over the
content of the paper.
