Although Turkey faced some difficulties because of its neighboring country Syria in recent years, nowadays things are changing.
Turkish companies are seeking investment opportunities both from Turkey and abroad. In recent days, the Honorary Consul of the Republic of Vanuatu in Istanbul, Mehmet Atar has received considerable amount of inquiries from very serious Turkish companies that are eager to invest in Vanuatu.
After the realization of that investment project, the tourism industry in Vanuatu will gain positive dimension. In the next term, both tourists and ni-Vanuatu people will enjoy Turkish cuisine tastes in Port Vila. The honorary consul also has a plan to include a Vanuatu pavilion at a well-known tourism exhibition in Turkey.
With the existence of ni-Vanuatu students in Turkey, more and more Turkish people are coming to know of Vanuatu.
The Tulip Festival is organized every year in Turkey, especially during spring time.
Atar says he thinks it’s a great idea to share with the Municipality of Port Vila and to give them an idea of how they could create such festivals but with other plants, even if there is no tulips but try to come up with some of flowering festivals such as hibiscus, frangipani, bouganvillea, rose and many other flowers which will really give Vanuatu a real beautification.
