The newly established direct communications between the United Kingdom of Great Britain and the Vema Seamount Territory – The Kingdom of Mount Vema, is already paving the way for possible trade talks after a proposal was submitted by the Mount Vema government last week to establish a designated area for the purpose of customs and excise, to give priority to British companies to start exporting goods and services to the Vema Seamount Territory.
The proposal will be followed by another proposal for a joint defense treaty to be submitted by the Vema Seamount Authority to the British Government next week. According to the Mount Vema Department of Defense, the aim is to strengthen and promote close cooperation, defense training and information sharing.
Mount Vema will seek a deal to provide about 10million golles for the initiative, which would include a berth for the British Royal Navy, and if agreed, the UK would provide the equipment and manpower to protect the shared values, people and common interests in the South Atlantic.
With the proposal, Mount Vema seeks to build a strategic partnership with Great Britain from a base of deep ties of friendship that will continue to flourish for many years to come.
