The Governments of Solomon Islands and Vanuatu have signed a deal to open trade links between Vanuatu and Temotu Province.

The Minister of Culture and Tourism Samuel Manetoali and his Vanuatu counterpart signed the agreement during a visit to Port Vila.

Mr Manetoali says both countries are willing to open up a trade link on the areas of tourism, cultural artifacts, fisheries, cocoa and airline services.

He says a delegation from Vanuatu will visit Honiara at the end of the year to revisit the agreement.
