The Vanuatu National Statistics Office (VNSO) implemented the National Sustainable Development Plan (NSDP) Survey between April 2019 and March 2020. This survey provides all major baseline data for the NSDP indicators, including those related to the Vanuatu labour market. Also, given period of time in which the survey was carried out, it constitutes the key source for the pre-disaster baseline information. Data from the National Census 2020 will serve as the post-disaster labour market information to understand the impact of COVID-19 on employment.
The Department of Labour (DOL), in partnership with the International Labour Organisation (ILO), the Vanuatu Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) and the Vanuatu Council of Trades Union (VCTU) is launching a new platform for job seekers and employers.
