o Mi Harem Se congratulations are in order for the Australian incoming High Commissioner to Vanuatu H.E. Jenny Da Rin. Credentials were offered too and accepted by the President of Vanuatu H.E Honourable Baldwin Lonsdale. With two women at the Helm NGO’s throughout Vanuatu are singing from the rooftops that finally they may get heard. Good Luck on your 4 years here and welcome you will play an enormous role in this small pacific island country. Silip!
o Mi Harem Se the German Ambassador was not so lucky and has no-one to receive her credentials, however this has not stopped the German Ambassador to Australia and the Pacific from coming to Vanuatu to view some of the projects the German Government is currently funding here in Vanuatu sadly due to H.E. Dr. Anna Prinz is not actually recognised here in Vanuatu due to a protocol issue that denies any non-resident Ambassadors being allowed to present their credentials between November and March. Wonder if that will affect Germany’s 30% contribution to the EU and the GIZ agriculture program and the small grants offered every year to Ni-Vanuatu. Seems a bit of cut your nose off to spite your face, suggest the protocols office has been watching too much “Yes Minister ”. Silip!
o Mi Harem Se Dr Wolf Kilman the GIZ boss of the Pacific ids also touring with his Ambassador Designate and will be in town for the next week touring their countries contribution and eyeing off any other assistance that they may see will benefit Vanuatu. Silip!
o Mi Harem Se MG have taken time off to bring in the Chinese New Year. Some media have taken the time to have pot shots at the new developers, yet it seems they are legit even according to their detractors, wonder what more rubbish will surface before we get some real answers and by answers I mean bricks and mortar, the economy needs a boost coupled with long term advantages, lets hope they can bring the confidence for the rest to follow. Silip!
o Mi Harem Se an opinion in the DP was just that an opinion, many questioned its meanderings and some even wondered why it was printed at all. Silip!
o Mi Harem Se there was no ice cream at the Saloon bar but plenty of food dye when one became involved with another and then it was on for young and old, talk about the Wild, Wild West, it certainly is becoming the real wild western themed bar. Silip!
o Mi Harem Se certain parties have themselves involved on boards and then seem to charge them exorbitant rates and of course don a different hat and then endorse the contracts and payments, see not only the PSC can embolden this maybe they got it from the expat community that is quick to be so righteous and forget that they are the leading light. Silip!
o Mi Harem Se a certain international journalist has been travelling abroad lately gathering stories but not about Trump, he is a real reporter and he has reliably informed me that the US and China are nothing more than a pair of elephants, now that is what I call real journalism. Silip!
o Mi Harem Se a certain filmmaker and his screen writing wife have just made Vanuatu their new home, they will be back to enjoy the tranquillity of paradise as they so aptly described, sometimes we need someone to show us through a fresh set of eyes what we really have. Lest we forget Silip!
o Mi Harem Se that the Tax men are still at it, had reports on the draft legislation and even though they have been told that it is a no go they are continuing with their dreams, these guys also have been watching “Yes Minister” It would seem. Silip!
o Mi Harem Se “Yes Minister” for those playing at home was a English comedy series that depicted the inability of Ministers to achieve anything unless the Public servants wished for it to happen. Silip!
