Waiting on recovery plan from the Vanuatu government

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Radio New Zealand International, May 18, 2015) – The Chargé d'affaires of the Chinese embassy in Vanuatu says further aid from China is likely as the country's rebuild gets into full swing in the wake of Cyclone Pam.

Li Cuying says an assessment team from China is currently in the country visiting some of worst-affected islands, including Erromango and Tanna.

She says a delegation of Chinese officials has also flown to Vanuatu for a series of meetings with government ministers.

Ms Li says China is now waiting on the Vanuatu government to determine what its needs are to see what further assistance China can provide.

"So you know we haven't decided on our priorities because we are waiting on the recovery plan of the Vanuatu government. The projects we are going to fund will be based on the recovery plan of the Vanuatu government and our own assessment. So it will be decided later."
