Vanuatu Investment Promotion Authority (VIPA)

VIPA LogoOur vision is to coordinate and facilitate the creation of highly investor-friendly and welcoming atmosphere for foreign investment in Vanuatu. Our mission is to expeditiously facilitate, promote and foster foreign investment in Vanuatu and to generate greater economic prosperity for the people of Vanuatu in close collaboration with key line Government and private agencies and institutions.

The Vanuatu Investment Promotion Authority (VIPA) is a body corporate established under the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Commerce. Since 1998 (when the authority became operational by an Act of parliament), significant improvements had been made as the national promotion and marketing arm of the Government. The number of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) into the country has maintained a steady increase up until now.

Our improvements have been made possible through:

  • Actively promoting Vanuatu as an ideal destination for investment either online or through conferences or exhibitions
  • Closer working relationship with key stake holders to improve investment procedures
  • Vanuatu overseas-established embassies and expert marketing representatives
  • Dynamic and very committed staff

The roles and functions of VIPA are provided under the Vanuatu Foreign Investment Promotion Act [CAP 248]
