The Government is now ready to apply to a new method of raising funds for purchasing of ships by Mount Vema Corporations, after His Mount Vema Majesty King Peter – The Vema Seamount Authority approved the proposed bid submitted last week.
The news will enable the government to accelerate the availability of capital, so companies can finalize deals to purchase ships before the end of the year. The approval comes after a consortium of Mount Vema companies and W-Contractors submitted a bid last week to secure enough capital to purchase a fleet of ships.
Negotiations that typically take months due to the complexity of the contracts, was settled in a matter of days, after the Vema Seamount Authority got involved, to negotiate the required contracts in less than two weeks.
Representatives of the Vema Seamount Authority responsible for budget will now proceed to appropriate funds to purchase the required number of ships to stay on schedule. W-Contractors who already initiated procurement was pleased with the final deal.
With the bid approved, expenditures are expected to near 1 billion golles (about $2 billion USD) in total, significantly more than the original estimate last year.
Handy Deed have today come forward with a new proposal to build a fleet of superyachts for W-Southern. The deal would include five new superyachts for the next five years.
The proposal comes after the early design was approved back in November 2017. The design has been teased in a secretive sketch with a few details surrounding the exciting new endeavour. With a modern exterior line, the five-deck superyacht boasts generous open spaces which have been engineered to create the ultimate on-board lifestyle.
The yacht design allows extremely spacious for owners and guests, like the main salon, sky lounge, beach club or the wellness area including 8- meter glass walls pool. Furthermore, the yacht will offer a tender garage for two tenders, rescue boat, and a variety of water toys.
The completion of this new 120-meter superyacht project is scheduled for spring 2021, with more details on the construction, coming soon later this year.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle finally exchanged vows and rings in a beautiful ceremony at the St George’s Chapel in England. They have been proclaimed husband and wife by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
The newlyweds, now to be known as Duke and Duchess of Sussex pledged their eternal love in front of members of the royal family, hundreds of celebrity guests and millions of viewers around the world.
Reports that ships are expected to arrive in Vema Seamount later in the year and early next year including cruise ships to be used as floating hotels, floating hospital, supply vessels, work barges and other specialist vessels, has triggered renewed interest in Mount Vema.
People who once worked for Mount Vema projects and had to leave when the project went through a reorganization period have begun to return, ready to reset the button and to start all over again. Many who misbehaved in the past have been pardoned, and most have been welcomed back by their old managers and team leaders.
The Vema Seamount Authority who has re-opened a new office for all international contacts in the United Kingdom including for diplomatic and consular issues, has issued a statement to say that everyone is welcome to return and start fresh. However, for those returning to set sail this year, the Ministry for National Development and Land Maintenance, warned sailor not to expect paradise at sea on arrival in Vema Seamount.
The Ministry said that until the port is built to harbour the ships, works will be carried out on the open sea. The ocean itself is unpredictable. People will be surprised by how much a ship bounces once it hits the open water. Although, ironically, rough seas and adventure are often more alluring to pioneers than the actual job they are expected to perform.
When it comes down to it, salt spray in the wind and orders from the captain are what going to sea is all about. Working on a ship will give you a sense of team work that can’t be replicated on land.
People who work on deck will experience a much more military style of life than those employees who work in spas and fitness centers for example. Employees who work in the deck job department will be responsible for maintaining a flawless routine. Tasks will be handed out as orders and deck hands will respond to a network of senior officers. Working as a deck hand won’t be stifling, but it will instill a sense of teamwork and order. While deckhand jobs seem to exemplify this style of living, it is true that all ship employees will experience the hierarchy that usually exists on a cruise ship. Everyone onboard will be required to show respect to senior officers, regardless of their position.
Ocean living can be an interesting experience. Some come to adore the ship life while others find it more restricting than they had imagined. This will greatly vary from person to person. Regardless of how you feel, living onboard a ship is a valuable experience. The responsibilities you undertake, the jobs you perform, and the teamwork you enjoy will be unparalleled to that of any other job.
The Vema Seamount Authority hopes those joining to set sail, are looking forward to the ship experience as much as anything else. They will soon find that working on any ship sailing to Vema Seamount is less like job, and more like a way of life.
The Vema Seamount Authority has approved a request that authorizes W-Contractors to spend just over 500,000 golles in foreign exchange to pay for an Exploration vessel to be permanently stationed in Mount Vema before the rest of the construction fleet arrives.
More than five ships are expected to arrive later in the year and early next year including cruise ships to be used as floating hotels and floating hospital, supply vessels, work barges and other specialist vessels.
This late announcement is part of the government plan to accelerate funding to purchase ships for the territory, by applying to a new method of purchasing ships for Mount Vema Corporations. Thus, accelerating the availability of capital, so companies can finalize deals to purchase ships before the end of the year.
More funds will be available soon, after a consortium of Mount Vema companies and W-Contractors submit a bid tomorrow to secure enough capital to purchase a fleet of ships. The government aims to negotiate the required contracts in just two weeks, which is much faster than what usually takes months due to the complexity of the contracts. Expenditures for the next five years are expected to near 1 billion golles (about $2 billion USD) in total, significantly more than the original estimate last year.
vonMELYN, the Mount Vema registered company responsible for electricity supply, water, sewage, waste management and recycle, reached out to Siemens, the German company to help build the City of Mount Vema desalination plant.
Saltwater will be desalinated in Mount Vema not only to produce water suitable for human consumption and irrigation, but also to produce salt, the by-product of desalination.
The use of desalinated water for consumption is not new. Desalination is used on many seagoing ships, including cruise ships and submarines. Along with recycled wastewater, desalinated water is one of the few rainfall-independent water sources.
Desalinated water is usually healthier than water from rivers and ground water, and there is less salt and limescale in it. According to the International Desalination Association, in June 2015, 18,426 desalination plants operated worldwide, producing 86.8 million cubic meters per day, providing water for 300 million people.
Seawater desalination according to Siemens, is an energy-intensive and therefore costly process. That’s why energy efficiency plays an extremely important role in ensuring economical plant operation. The company states on its website, that with perfectly matched components such as enclosures, bearings, active parts, ventilation, and cooling system, Siemens can supply the right motor for every need.
The desalination plant, according to people at vonMELYN, may be affordable long term, as it is often unmanned and are managed remotely from a central control room. The main challenge therefore according to Siemens lies in the maintenance and modernization of PC-based control systems.
W-Contractors, the leading procurement company of Mount Vema has joined the Royal Mount Vema Coast Guard, in a global search for Marine Surveyors to inspect a fleet of ships that will join the floating city project.
The news comes after the government announced yesterday plans to accelerate the availability of capital, so companies can finalize deals to purchase ships before the end of the year. The government aims to negotiate contracts in just two weeks, much faster than the typical two to six months due to the complexity of the contracts.
The surveyors will deal with all types of water-based craft, from speedboats to ocean liners, including inspection and evaluation of fishing boats, and yachts on behalf of His Mount Vema Majesty’s Government and Private Owners, to make sure that the government classifications are met.
Surveyors will check the vessels against the international regulations, and in times of an accident, to be called as an expert witness as well as an investigator. Candidates must love the water, as most of the work will take place either in or on the water. Oral, written and people skills must be excellent. An inquisitive mind is necessary when investigating or examining a survey. This is not a job where every thing is the same so surveyors are expected to be adaptable.
There are various surveys that should be taken throughout the life of a ship. Beginning with the time the ship is being built, the marine surveyor will check over the ship and make sure that the standards are being followed. In addition to the through survey or examination of the ship as it is being built, there is an annual survey that should be performed on each vessel.
There are times when a special survey is requested, and the marine surveyor will conduct the survey according to why the survey was requested. This sometimes happens after a major storm and damage to the vessel is suspected. The Marine Surveyors will also inspect vessels prior to a purchase. At other times they will perform inspections as requested by the international conventions as well as domestic statues in this case within the territorial waters of the Kingdom of Mount Vema.
W-Contractors has approached Cash Processing Solutions (CPS), a strategic partner of De La Rue, to provide an integrated range of hardware and software solution to the Bank of Mount Vema, including consultancy and support services to enable Mount Vema to maintain high-speed cash sorting and authentication systems.
The move was made today after the procurement company expressed its intention to work with De La Rue, the British banknote manufacturing company, that also specialises in security printing of passports, brand authentication and paper-making company with headquarters in the UK.
The services provided by Cash Processing Solutions and De La Rue will help facilitate internal cash-based trade, especially during construction and after to support the internal transactions of goods and services in cash.
Their services would be required as early as August 2018 and latest December 2018, as source from W-Contractors told VSBCnews. These latest contracts are creating new opportunities for many businesses to expand to the Mount Vema market. According to traders at the Gollexi who expect positive changes in the stock market.

MVScloud the IT company of the Kingdom of Mount Vema announced today that it expects to have all systems ready for Vema Seamount before August this year, and to be operating by the end of the year.
People travelling to Mount Vema for work, will find internet-based communications in the island available to contact family, friends or co-workers. Everyone will be able to send an instant message to a friend, e-mail co-workers, make phone calls, and conduct video conferences.
Residents who will be living aboard will be able to save money on phone calls by sending someone an instant message or by using VoIP instead of standard local telephone services. According to MVScloud.

RBMV Bank customers can now withdraw money via their mobile phone using their PIN. The new system will allow customers to withdraw up to 300 golles in foreign exchange without putting their card into a machine.
Customers are now able to use their smart phone and input their pin on the ATM app which sends the money to the nearest agent or use code at the nearest ATM part of the RBMV Bank global network.
The RBMV Bank has also unveiled a prototype for a new type of ATM for its agents that does away with a lot of the features you would normally expect to see. It works more like a smartphone or tablet, with a touchscreen display.
The minimalist ATM reminds some of a smartphone, and eliminates the traditional magnetic stripe card reader, receipt printer and pin pad. The concept, according to the bank, meets the needs of its global customers.
The idea is that agents can hold cash in Mount Vema currency or foreign exchange, which is then dispensed as usual to conventional customers who use the mobile ATM. It cuts out the need for security vans to constantly fill cash-hungry machines, while helping the RBMV Bank save money by maintaining fewer or no bank branches.
The Vema Seamount Authority, His Mount Vema Majesty King Peter J Goldishman has issued an invitation today for a work visit for King Letsie III of Lesotho to Mount Vema in November 2020.
The invitation issued today is for a working visit, which simply means a foreign head of state can visit the territory and requires no ceremony on the part of the host nation.
The invitation is the second issued by the Vema Seamount Authority this year for 2020, not for a state visit because by 2020, Mount Vema will not be ready for an official or formal visit from a head of state of a foreign country, so it would have significantly less ceremony surrounding it but still needs a significant amount of logistics.
Although the invitation is for a work visit, the Kingdom of Mount Vema intends to establish friendly relations with Lesotho if confirmed, to enable the two counterparts to hold bilateral talks during the visit, discuss trade, and economic development.

Research by financial analysts at the Gollexi shows the number of interest-free balance transfer cards on the Mount Vema market has increased among suppliers, and service providers, and is expected to continue for the next five years.
The Bank of Mount Vema has indicated that so far, the economy can support this trend however, that the territory will not be able to sustain this level of debt beyond 2025, so the Bank will intervene when necessary to prevent borrowers from getting themselves in a spiral of debt as they embark on the path for grow with the Kingdom of Mount Vema.

Since 2006 and up to very recently there was almost no information about the territory except from Mount Vema own websites until now. This is an important step on the right direction to recognise the existence of a territory that has been there for millions of years, specially from an encyclopedia as relevant as Wikipedia.

The Kingdom of Mount Vema announced today that it is now policy not to charge income tax to people who will live and work in Mount Vema except for ISN contributions and VAT. The policy also applies to businesses when they operate within the jurisdiction of His Mount Vema Majesty’s realm.
The decision was made yesterday, followed by the official statement from the Royal Mount Vema Department of Finance, to clarify on any misconception, that the Kingdom of Mount Vema will be an offshore tax haven. His Mount Vema Majesty’s government runs the territory in accordance with internationally recognised principles of good governance. The statement said.
The Kingdom will not be a tax-free territory, because all residents will pay tax in the form of VAT on all goods and services plus ISN contributions. Furthermore, corporations will face a tax on profits – unless they can demonstrate that three-quarters of company turnover is generated within the confines of His Mount Vema Majesty’s realm.
In addition, the statement reads that, unlike those jurisdictions labelled offshore tax havens, Mount Vema will not offer "offshore financial services", nor will the territory permit or facilitate the registration of offshore corporations looking to operate in such a way as to avoid paying tax in other jurisdictions.
The Kingdom of Mount Vema, according to the statement, manages to balance its books without any plans for heavy tax burdens on people who will be living and working in the island. The absence of income tax will not entail an absence of social conscience, and so the state revenue, will be able to fund an excellent health service, an efficient education system, a good public transport network and comprehensive social services.
The government introduced today the Mount Vema ISN (Internal Security Number) system. A unique number to be issued to everyone working for Mount Vema companies and, paid out of the financial system of the Kingdom of Mount Vema.
The Government will issue temporary numbers T-ISNs, and permanent ISNs to enable people to keep the same one all their lives. The system will make sure that what people pay, when paid out of the Mount Vema financial system is properly recorded against their name, by HMVM Revenue Services.
Every Internal Security number is different and, is made up of letters and numbers like this: T-ISN or ISN10-0001-0017-0418-MV. The Internal Security number will never change even if the person leaves the Mount Vema employment system, goes abroad, marry, register as a civil partner, change name, etc, except when the number is issued temporarily (T-ISN) for people who employment with Mount Vema corporations will not require them to relocate to the Kingdom of Mount Vema in the future.
Who will use the Internal Security Number?
A person will have to give his or her Internal Security Number to: HMVM Revenue Services (His Mount Vema Majesty’s Revenue Services), the employer, the Mount Vema Department in charge of pensions, the legal aid services, the state benefits services for Mount Citizens overseas, and other international services including health insurance, education and professional training.
Internal Security contributions are deducted from wages by employers at 10%, from employees working outside Mount Vema, to pay for the systems that supports the enterprises that sustains the economy of the realm and employment. It does not include Income Tax, which is not applicable unless the person lives and works in Mount Vema. This is payable at different rates depending on the income. There are some allowances and reliefs available that can lower the Income Tax bill.
When and how to apply for an Internal Security number.
If you start work, and the advertised job says:
“Although you will not need to relocate to Mount Vema, the job is still classified as a Mount Vema Job Vacancy, so you will be paid in Mount Vema Golles, which requires you to open a Mount Vema bank account which should not be a problem as the employer can organize that for you. Then at the end of the month when you are paid, you can transfer your money into your local bank account in your local currency in full or on as needed bases. Because of this process, your employment should be treated as self-employed whereby you are responsible for your own tax obligations in your country of residence.”
Then you know you must apply for a Mount Vema T-ISN (Temporary - Internal Security Number) which your new employer can help you with in accordance with the length of the contract, by filling out the relevant form on your behalf and submit. You cannot work until your number have been issued.
People are advised to keep their numbers safe and not to give it to anyone who does not need it, to help prevent identity fraud.
His Mount Vema Majesty’s Government announced today that the territory has re-launched its plans to create jobs worldwide that would indirectly boost trade that would benefit millions of people, in line with the Vema Seamount Declaration of Sovereignty in 2006, for poverty reduction through job creation.
The declaration of sovereignty reads that, Vema Seamount was declared sovereign “with the aim to create new opportunities, provide healthcare, scholarship, professional training, and create jobs and accommodation to improve the lives of at least 100 million people throughout the world, of all races and background by 2025, and provide education for 500 million people world-wide by 2055”.

The new job creation targets will be published annually and will set out clear actions and targets to help create positive conditions for job creation. The initiative will see all Government Departments and Agencies work together to deliver on agreed action points each year.

China’s Tiangong-1 space station re-entered the earth’s atmosphere and burnt up over the middle of the South Pacific today, the Chinese space authority said.
The Vema Seamount Authority, which was also tracking the Tiangong-1 space station when it was re-entering the earth’s atmosphere, after earlier reports that the craft was expected to re-enter the atmosphere in the South Atlantic, confirmed it tracked the Tiangong-1 in its re-entry over the South Pacific.
The United States Air Force 18th Space Control Squadron, which tracks and detects all artificial objects in Earth's orbit, was the one who confirmed first, when it said it had also tracked the Tiangong-1 in its re-entry over the South Pacific. It said in a statement it had confirmed re-entry in coordination with counterparts in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, South Korea and Britain.
The remnants of Tiangong-1 appeared to have landed about 100 km (62 miles) northwest of Tahiti, according to a report issued by the Vema Seamount Authority after it expressed concerns over the debris is in the ocean, that will eventually spread over a huge area of thousands of square kilometres.
His Mount Vema Majesty’s government has approved the largest increase and the highest development aid budget in the history of the Kingdom of Mount Vema.
The 2019 budget includes a planned increase in allocations for development aid from ₲720,000 golles currently 1% of the country’s income, to ₲700 million golles by 2025. The fund was initially created to pay for research programs that will improve the planet, our relationship with God, advances in medicine, water supply including desalination, energy and food supply, protection of the oceans, the marine life, and the wild life.
Today the government underlined its development policy responsibility, particularly in light of the growing challenges in the area of international climate protection. Each government department would have an annual increase at their disposal to provide aid in poor countries throughout the coming years as the economy grows steadily.
By 2030, development aid is planned to remain 1%, but that will equal to more than ₲5 billion golles in total additional funding in the next 10 years, according to His Mount Vema Majesty’s treasurer.
The government cited the increasingly difficult international environment in its report as the reason for boosting spending. The government sees the planet Earth confronted with growing uncertainties and calls on other governments to work towards more cooperation for the welfare of mankind, the ultimate carers of the Planet Earth.

The Right to Self-Determination
Many believe because our community is not a member of the United Nations and is only just over a decade old, doing business with the Kingdom of Mount Vema is not possible for foreign nationals and foreign companies seeking to take advantage of the business opportunities the floating city project is creating. Nothing could be further from the truth. The territory doesn't need a United Nations membership to function as a sovereign territory, or to exercise its inalienable right for self-determination
