20 Apr 2006

On the 20th of April 2006, the report of the Cultural Centre's study into the Customary Lands Tribunal Act and the process of its implementation was officially launched.

Chief Selwyn Garu, the Secretary General of the Malvatumauri National Council of Chiefs, officially launched the report at the Chiefs’ Nakamal in Port Vila. At the launch, the Director of the Cultural Centre, Ralph Regenvanu, stressed that the publication of this report at this time was intended to raise general awareness in the country in preparation for the National Land Summit, which takes place in Port Vila in the last week of September 2006. Between March and May 2006, the Cultural Centre assisted the Department of Lands to undertake awareness about the Lands Summit in each province of the country.
