National Ports Regulator Technical Assistance, Vanuatu
The Government of Vanuatu was developing a new port facility in Port Vila through a mix of official development loans and private investment. It did not have the institutional capacity to regulate the economic activity of this port and manage access by private operators to the facility.
How we helped
Castalia developed a framework for the economic regulation of port services in Vanuatu and set out an action plan to create and effective National Port Regulator in Vanuatu.
After four years of reform, the Office of the Maritime Regulator was established in Vanuatu, combining our legislative, organizational and financial frameworks for economic regulation with oversight of maritime safety and security.
