The Acting Prime Minister and also Minister of Tourism Joe Natuman has warned the Shefa Port Vila Land Transport Association – SPVLTA Chairman, Donald Massing “to stop interfering with traffic management on the Port Vila Tourism Wharf” or face arrest.
In a Letter dated 17 January 2918, Natuman reminded Massing that “the responsibility for the management of traffic at the wharf was delegated in 2016 to the ‘Port Vila Cruise Tourism Committee’, the Department of Ports and Harbour’, ‘the Police’, and ‘the Port Vila Cruise Transport Association’.”
The Acting PM in his letter to the SPVLTA chairman says “the Chairman’s interference with the traffic management at the wharf this week resulted in a fight which caused injuries to a tourist.”

Natuman reminds Massing the main objective at the Wharf is “Tourism” and nothing else.
