Vanuatu parliament again adjourned

11:29 am on 14 April 2014

An extraordinary sitting of Vanuatu's parliament to debate the country's proposed US$350million airport development at South Efate has again been postponed.

MPs were to look at the agreement, signed by the Prime Minister last year, on Friday but didn't because documents relating to the development were not available.

Radio Vanuatu reports matters concerning a loan from the Ex-IM Bank of China and the Vanuatu National Provident Fund to Air Vanuatu were still not ready for debate today.

It reports parliament has been adjourned until two o'clock this afternoon for the government to give these matters further consideration.
