A Commitment to Right to Information (RTI): At the heart of the Department of Tourism's mission is a dedication to upholding the principles of the Right to Information (RTI) Act. This legislation, backed by the comprehensive Users Guide, signifies our commitment to providing accessible and requested information to the public. We believe that governments should be accountable by making information about policies, programs, and activities readily available.
Aligning with National and International Standards: Our commitment to the RTI Act mirrors Vanuatu's broader national strategy for improved governance. It aligns seamlessly with initiatives such as the Comprehensive Reform Program, National Priority Action Agenda, and the Leadership Code. Furthermore, it underscores Vanuatu's international compliance with treaties like the United Nations Convention Against Corruption. By embracing RTI, we demonstrate our dedication to transparency and accountability on a global scale.
Empowering the Public: The objectives of the Vanuatu Right to Information Law resonate deeply with the Department of Tourism's mission. This law empowers the public to engage in transparent governance, hold authorities accountable, foster public participation, and reinforce freedom of expression. It is a cornerstone of our efforts to contribute to national development by promoting an informed and engaged citizenry.
