Dubai: After the Republic of Vanuatu formed their new Government under the Hon. Prime Minister Bob Loughman, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Hon. Marc Ati, appointed Mimoun A. Assraoui the honour of being the new Trade Commissioner of Vanuatu to Dubai, UAE.

Subsequently, the first Trade Mission of Vanuatu in Dubai, UAE was formed with Mimoun A. Assraoui appointed as Chairman, David Regueiro as CEO, and John Hanafin as Foreign Direct Investor Director. This represents the Vanuatu Government’s first and only representative office in the UAE.

Over the next three-years, the new Trade Mission will be committed towards building a stronger relationship between Vanuatu and the UAE, including:

  • Development and promotion of trade, investment and tourism opportunities between Vanuatu and the UAE
  • Advise the Vanuatu government on opportunities for expanding economic and trade relations
  • Identifying and assisting all Vanuatu citizens residing in the UAE
  • Support Vanuatu citizens with the renewal of their passports
  • Work closely with the Vanuatu Government to encourage current and new citizens to build a stronger nexus and connection with Vanuatu
  • Assist the Vanuatu government in organising logistics and other support towards its participation in the World Expo 2021
  • Promote the Vanuatu Development Support (Citizenship) Programme in Dubai
  • Assist and facilitate Vanuatu dignitaries, investor delegations travelling into and through Dubai
  • Explore further opportunities for establishing air routes between Dubai and Port Vila after the completion of the Vanuatu Bauerfield Airport

Assraoui and Regueiro through their company, RIF Trust, have been significant supporters and contributors to the Vanuatu Citizenship-by-Investment Programme since its inception and this new appointment solidifies the growing partnership.

Consular services, including passport renewal, birth registration, driver license and business license application/renewal and bank account openings, will be a core benefit of the Trade Mission as the sole representative office that can offer these services to the hundreds of Vanuatu citizens living in the UAE.

“We are very honoured with this appointment and look forward to representing the Vanuatu Government in the UAE and helping to expand economic and trade relations. We also encourage citizens of Vanuatu to contact us and learn how we can help them,” said Assraoui.
