Today, the government has begun examining the various options available to evacuate people from Vema Seamount or Mount Vema building sites in case of emergency. Although the helicopter has always been considered as the safest method of evacuation and mostly used worldwide for planned and precautionary evacuations, today more options have been examined.
The government wants to make sure everything is in place to deal with all types of emergency situations such as fire and explosion, structural failure, adverse weather conditions or even very rare conditions such as potable water contamination or drifting of unmanned barge.
In rescue, helicopter have always been seen a first option, and lifeboats as second means of evacuation at sea. However, the government is examining its plans for large evacuations. The current plans which have been in place for more than a decade, is self-sufficient and works without the need to rely on external help.
However, the government is examining the possibilities of increase capacity for large evacuations not just the use of crane and related passenger capsule or link between sites, as other alternatives in evacuation methodologies but the means to respond to more extreme weather conditions and the need to relocate large numbers of people.
Due to many associated risks especially at the initial stages of developments, safe evacuation from building installations has been a significant concern and today the government has begun the process to make sure everyone knows what to do upon arrival to visit or live and work within the Vema Seamount territorial waters.
His Mount Vema Majesty’s Government has confirmed plans to join ITU, the International Telecommunication Union. Although membership of ITU is open to only UN members, which may join the Union as Member States, Mount Vema intends to join initially under the same platform as the Vatican City which is a Sovereign State member of the ITU but is not a member of the UN.
The membership is important to the government, to enable the Vema Seamount Territory to use its own country calling code. Country dial in codes are telephone dialing prefixes for the member countries or regions of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). They are defined by the ITU-T in standards E.123 and E.164. The prefixes enable international direct dialing (IDD), and are also referred to as international subscriber dialing (ISD) codes.
Mount Vema currently relies on routers installed on board of ships to connect to other countries, but as the economic activities increase, and to support the nation’s economy and infrastructure, having its own country code will be an important step.
Country codes are necessary only when dialing a telephone number to establish a call to another country, and it is dialed before the national telephone number. By convention, international telephone numbers are represented by prefixing the country code with a plus sign (+).
If the code is not secured on time, there are alternative plans to join as a private organization like the membership granted to carriers, equipment manufacturers, funding bodies, research and development organizations and international and regional telecommunication organizations, which can join ITU as non-voting Sector Members.
His Mount Vema Majesty’s Government is calling health organizations and individuals engaged in works related to research, new initiatives and ongoing works to prevent, improve treatment and cure of stroke and the rise of resistance to antibiotics, for the benefit of mankind across the world, to express interest and apply for funding from Mount Vema.
Proposals and requests for funding must be submitted no later than August 31st, 2019 to be included in His Mount Vema Majesty’s Government 2019/2020 international healthcare budget to be allocated annually to world health issues related to stroke and the rise of resistance to antibiotics.
Requests should be submitted to the attention of The Mount Vema Health Authority (The Royal Mount Vema Department of Health), responsible for allocation of health-related funding for the world community. Institutions and health organizations already working with Mount Vema should submit their applications to the attention of the Mount Vema Ministry of Health.
To express interest and apply for the Government’s 2019/2020 fund for stroke and the rise of resistance to antibiotics, applicants should visit the official contact page of the Kingdom of Mount Vema at www.mount-vema.com and fill out the online contact form.
Taoiseach Leo VARADKAR, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Ireland was invited to visit the Vema Seamount territory in November 2020. The invitation is part of the Vema Seamount Authority efforts to reconnect and strengthen ties with the Republic of Ireland.
The Vema Seamount Authority who lived in the Republic of Ireland since 1998, has finally made contact, almost Twenty years after to invite the Irish Prime Minister to see and presence the works to be undertaken in the South Atlantic, within the Vema Seamount territorial waters.
He used the invitation to open a line of communication for bilateral talks between both parties to seek cooperation and open the doors to Irish companies who wish to get involved in the City of Mount Vema project especially in technology and finance.
His Mount Vema Majesty’s government will commission five speed boats for the Mount Vema Police, with ten more to follow next year. The boats will be used to enforce the law of the realm, protect people and property, and to prevent crime.
The powers of the Mount Vema police are like those of the Royal Mount Vema Coast Guard and includes the power of arrest and the legitimized use of force. However, the Coast Guard is part of the Ministry of Defense and the Police force is separated from the Military, or other organizations involved in the defense of the realm against foreign aggressors.
Although the police force will be mainly a public sector service, funded through fees and taxes, they also form part of the Mount Vema Royal Guards, especially the armed police units that will provide law enforcement support to the unarmed police.
The Police forces will include both preventive (uniformed) police and detectives, protecting life and property, enforcing criminal law, criminal investigations, crowd control, and other public safety duties. Although the police will be small in comparison to countries with large cities, the Mount Vema police forces will be generally organized as a hierarchy with multiple ranks.
Most of the duties will be available as a 24/7 service, and when not responding to call-outs, they will do work aimed at preventing crime both on surface and underwater. In some cases, the police will be assigned to work undercover, where they will conceal their police identity to investigate crimes, such as organized crime, or narcotics crime, that are unsolvable by other means.
Most undercover officers, like detectives will be recruited from the uniformed branch who, will be recruited from private security contractors that once qualified will be allowed to join the uniformed branch or to take exams to move to the detective branch.
The Mount Vema police services will also rely on part-time or volunteer officers, some of whom may have other jobs outside policing. These may be paid positions or entirely volunteer to be known as the special police who will be unarmed like most of the officers who will not carry firearms as a matter of course, mainly because in Mount Vema, civilians will have no right to own or carry fire arms.
The police will have specialist units for handling armed offenders and, can call on military aid if needed, which can use deadly force as last resort when necessary to save human life.
The new police boats will be marked with appropriate logos equipped with the ability to extinguish fires and will have sirens and flashing light bars to aid in making others aware of police presence. They will also be equipped with the latest radio communications equipment, to co-ordinate their work, share information, and get help quickly.
Mobile data terminals will be included to enhance the ability of police communications, enabling easier dispatching of calls, criminal background checks on persons of interest to be completed in a matter of seconds, and updating officers' daily activity log and other required reports on a real-time basis.
The officers handling the boats will focus on crime prevention, and like other officers, they will be rotating police officers from district to district to reduce their vulnerability to corruption. They will be recruited with high police salaries to attract professionally qualified officers.
A few days ago, no one could say anything, now we know why. A major announcement was due. The Government announced this morning that it has all in place to start what some have waited for 12 years. “There are some key deals with hundreds of contractors still to be negotiated, but we have the basics to get started.” Said the government in a statement this morning.
Until more companies join the pioneering journey to Mount Vema, transportation services for the workforce will be provided by W-Southern, all paid for by the employer. Jobs will be rotational, and staff will be 3 months at sea 1 month off, meaning 3 months off each year and 9 months at sea, until January 1st, 2020.
Workers travel expenses will be paid by the employer 3 times a year however people will be able to travel as often as they wish, at their own expense. From 2020 everyone will be responsible for paying their own transportation fare whenever they decide to travel.
Temporary accommodation will be provided by Bavarolle, paid by the employer until January the 1st 2020, the year when workers will be responsible for paying for their own accommodation. One thing the employers will not pay for is the entry visa/work permit fee.
Temporary work permits/entry visa have nothing to do with the employer, the entry fee at this stage should be waved too, however it won’t according to the government as it will be needed to maintain essential services including healthcare, security and emergency.
Meals will be prepared by specialist private contractors to be appointed from time to time, paid by the employer until January the 1st 2020. From this date workers will be responsible for paying for their own meals.
Healthcare will also be provided by private contractors, paid by the employer until January the 1st 2020, when the health service will be provided from hospital or clinics and will remain generally free for everyone.
Internet will be provided by private contractors to be appointed from time to time by MVScloud, until January the 1st 2020, when everyone will be responsible for paying for their own internet bills. The government is advising that some cell phones may not work in the area, but there will be other means to call home. Or people will need to buy a Mount Vema cell phone.
“Mount Vema, Vema Seamount, The Vema Seamount Territory, The City of Mount Vema Project, the institutions of Mount Vema and its employees, their families, business partners and allies, are no scam! We are all hard-working people like any citizen of the Planet Earth, aiming to build a better future for ourselves and for our children.”
“If you have or had any issues in your dealings with Mount Vema, Vema Seamount, The Vema Seamount Territory, The City of Mount Vema Project, the institutions of Mount Vema and including members of the Mount Vema Royal Family, there are protocols and legal mechanisms to solve the issue.”
“If the issue cannot be solved amicably, you may inform your local authorities, and your local authorities will formally request assistance from His Mount Vema Majesty’s Government on the matter, if it is a very serious matter, inform your local representative who may inform the head of Government or Head of State in your country to raise the issue with The Vema Seamount Authority – His Mount Vema Majesty King Peter J. Goldishman, who you may believe it or not your leaders have the means to reach him.”.
This statement was issued today by His Mount Vema Majesty’s Government who said it plans to start suing, pressing charges, blacklist and publicly name and shame people and organizations who engage in defaming Mount Vema, Vema Seamount, The Vema Seamount Territory, The City of Mount Vema Projects, the institutions of Mount Vema and its employees, and their families without any prove whatsoever and who make such defamatory statements or accusation based on what they read on the internet.
The Government says it has the right to defend its sovereignty, its institutions and its employees and the thousands of aspiring talented individuals who see Mount Vema as an opportunity to prosper. In many cases Mount Vema will apply to its own defamation law.
The Mount Vema defamation legislation makes provisions with respect to actions for defamation and malicious falsehood by a person who has published a statement alleged to be defamatory of another person, a registered company, an organization, a government, an authority, a state or a territory which is a natural and an identifiable integral part of the Planet Earth.
The law says that public statements having qualified privilege without explanation or contradiction are:
A fair and accurate report of proceedings in public of a legislature. A fair and accurate report of proceedings in public before a court. A fair and accurate report of proceedings in public of a person appointed to hold a public inquiry by a government or legislature anywhere in the world.
Including: A fair and accurate report of proceedings in public anywhere in the world of an international organization or an international conference. A fair and accurate copy of or extract from any register or other document required by law to be open to public inspection. A notice or advertisement published by or on the authority of a court, or of a judge or officer of a court, anywhere in the world. And a fair and accurate copy of or extract from matter published by or on the authority of a government or legislature anywhere in the world.
Some say October others say November, but everyone agrees on something, Mount Vema D-Day is near. With more divers being recruited than ever before and a worldwide campaign to recruit Foremen is a clear indication that construction is about to start. Some have waited 12 years for this moment.
The whole world is talking about it, but among the participants, no one is talking, although you can just feel it in the air. For security and the safety of everyone travelling, employers must ensure communications are monitored. Unless you work for VSBCnews and you have access to press releases, the government and top managers are not saying anything until construction starts and the Vema Seamount Authority signals the greenlight.
As the Vema Seamount Authority opens one curtain after the other that shows thousands of direct and indirect jobs being created across the world, it became clearer yesterday when W-Contractors launched its latest campaign to recruit Construction Foreman for Handy Deed to work on building projects over Vema Seamount.
The foremen will coordinate operations and oversee workers at the construction sites, and as the point of reference of both workers and supervisors, they will be the key people for the completion of projects.
Handy Deed is looking for men and women with solid background in the field, leadership skills and extensive experience with the ability to direct the work of others and make quick decisions. They must favor safety above everything else.
A group of commercial divers are scheduled to arrive in Mount Vema, Handy Deed announced. The number will increase gradually until the end of the year and early next year. More than 50 divers will form part of the first team to arrive to work in installations of equipment and structures.
The news comes after W-Contractors, the leading recruitment company of Mount Vema announced that it is recruiting Commercial Divers for Handy Deed to work in installations of equipment and structures in Vema Seamount during construction of docks, the seaport and breakwaters.
The initial works, according to W-Contractors will involve filming and photograph underwater sites, guide crane operators and make sure that any waste is safely removed. The divers will communicate with workers on the surface while underwater, using signal lines or telephones.
The news is already boosting sales of diving equipment especially in cities where most of the divers are being recruited and this trend in likely to continue as the entire operation will need supplies of diving equipment and parts almost on daily bases.
The announcement will now trigger the recruitment people needed to support the diving operations and that is the site managers, chefs, the cleaners and general maintenance staff, including security and media personnel to record every historic moment.
Handy-Deed has tried to recruit first 20 commercial divers to start its operations early this year in Cape Town - South Africa due to the country’s proximity to Mount Vema, but that attempt failed to attract any suitable candidate, so plans were then put on hold.
But this time everything is on the move, after the company decided to list W-Contractors – The leading recruitment agency of Mount Vema to find workers elsewhere and it worked. Commercial divers are applying in numbers never seen before, coming mainly from North America and Scandinavia.
The divers will also conduct tests, experiments, film and photograph structures of the different sites of the Vema Seamount Territory and its marine life for the libraries of Mount Vema, for the world to see and for better management of the marine environment.
MONTfisheries, the fishing company of Mount Vema confirmed plans to build two modern fishing vessels to help the Vema Seamount Territory meet its 2025 fisheries exporting targets first announced by His Mount Vema Majesty’s Government in August.
MONTfisheries which is currently the only company licensed to fish within The Vema Seamount Territorial Waters said the two shipbuilding projects will be put to tender on January the 10th, 2019 to comply with a government policy introduced to promote competition.
The competition policy states that any project costing more than 50,000 golles must be open to everyone and contracts must be awarded to the best proposals. The policy was also introduced as part of The Vema Seamount Authority plan to build a society where you don’t make it because of who you know or where you come from, but because of your ability to get the job done.
The plans confirmed by MONTfisheries today is most likely to be welcomed by foreign shipyards who will be expected to bid for contracts. In a statement issued this morning, His Mount Vema Majesty’s government who first announced the plans in August to join the list of top fish exporting countries as part of a long-term strategy to help combat hunger with fish and fishery products, welcomed the announcement.
The Vema Seamount Territory plans to reach and maintain annual targets of 200,000+ tons by 2025, approximately 400 million golles of fish stocks from both capture and aquaculture, first got the support of MONTfisheries in August when the company signalled that it was onboard after instructing W-Contractors to search for companies to design and build its aquaculture installations in Mount Vema.
Revenues from lease berths annual service charge and ground rent in Mount Vema will help the government raise more than 100 million golles per year, according to new estimates released today by RBMV Bank – The Royal Bank of Mount Vema.
The estimate has doubled the figure published by the Mount Vema Ministry of Economy and Finance in 2014, which reflects on the value of the City of Mount Vema Project today in comparison to four year ago.
Although additional fees may be incurred when using a solicitor to reserve and purchase lease berths in Mount Vema, there will be no extra fees when paying for annual service charge & ground rent which will cost only approximately 600 golles per year according to the current plans, and which will not be charged until 1 year after the docks are fully operational.
The Mount Vema unique Leasehold Berth deals come with the option of an additional supplement storage, 24hrs security, and beautiful restaurants, luxury apartments and hotels, modern facilities and workshop teams, 24hr Diesel & Pump-Out Dock, a number of approved subcontractors and wonderful settings.
The Government is already inviting sailors, yacht clubs, and organizations in the maritime industry to express interest and apply to reserve berths in the ports and harbors of the City of Mount Vema project where they will be able to moor their vessels and benefit from the exclusive services Mount Vema will have to offer.
Additional services to be made available are designed for all types of berths including Bulk berth, Container berth, General berth, Lay berth, Lay-by berth, Marina berth, Product berth, X berth and Z berth. However, both X and Z leases according to government officials will require bilateral agreement and serious consideration to regional and international security, the preservation of peace and maintain Mount Vema as a neutral state.
His Mount Vema Majesty’s Government is calling health organizations and individuals engaged in works related to research, new initiatives and ongoing works to prevent, improve treatment and cure of skin related diseases, including skin cancer, for the benefit of mankind across the world, to express interest and apply for funding from Mount Vema.
Proposals and requests for funding must be submitted no later than August 31st 2019 to be included in His Mount Vema Majesty’s Government 2019/2020 international healthcare budget to be allocated annually to world health issues associated with skin related diseases.
Requests should be submitted to His Mount Vema Majesty’s Government, to the attention of The Mount Vema Health Authority (The Royal Mount Vema Department of Health), who has the duty to advise the Sovereign and the Royal Departments on public health related matters, as it specializes in the health of the community, and is also responsible for allocation of world health-related funding.
To express interest and apply for the Government’s 2019/2020 skin related disease funding, applicants should visit the official contact page of the Kingdom of Mount Vema at www.mount-vema.com and fill out the online contact form.
As more crew, architects, engineers, divers, ships, suppliers and others join to set sail to the Vema Seamount Territorial waters, the number of manpower required to keep the City of Mount Vema Project on schedule will see an increase in job creation this year.
According to this last Quarter job creation data released today by the Royal Mount Vema Department of Statistics and Risk Assessment, the government will restructure operations to ensure Mount Vema companies focus more on outsourcing and subcontracting to be able to maintain momentum.
The government is already intensifying its international public offerings to enable more companies to bid for construction contracts and other services including catering.
The Statistics Department third Quarter job creation data gave another indication that the City of Mount Vema Project will continue to create enough jobs to maintain economic growth at the rate projected by the Bank of Mount Vema and the Royal Mount Vema House Guardian.
Job opportunities in sectors such as finance, administration, are still opened including in manufacturing, transport and logistics, engineering and construction which are continuously strengthening the overseas economy of Mount Vema.
Interest from foreign companies to join the Gollexi (Mount Vema Stock Exchange) is increasing, thanks to a multitude of trade and investment opportunities for exporters to the Mount Vema market. The successful auction of Mount Vema Government Bills (MVG-Bills) yesterday shows that the stock market is helping attract major investors to the Kingdom of Mount Vema.
The number of positive replies from foreign companies invited to join the Mount Vema market indicates that the large volume of interest registered in the City of Mount Vema project suggests a rush by foreign investors to secure a stake in this new South Atlantic economy.
Some of the major sectors expected to experience rapid growth are processed food and beverages going to the construction installations in Vema Seamount this year. Transport, IT and telecommunications, energy, marine products, environment protection services, building construction products and services are also expected to be very profitable.
Another of the major growth industries expected to be highly profitable in Mount Vema is the exporting of education. The foreign education sector in Mount Vema is split in two -students studying abroad and foreign education service providers set to establish a presence in the country's building sites.
The type of students interested in Mount Vema includes those who need English language study not just to be able to work in the country but to advance their careers in the island and those who wish to study university degrees right through to post-graduate/MBA studies etc.
As the cost of overseas study remains high, pursuing qualifications through Mount Vema accredited institutions abroad has become more practical and more popular. Course delivery can take two forms. One is the foreign school catering exclusively to migrant workers, which can be wholly foreign owned and the other is the investor who wishes to be an education entity.
There is a growing market for imported foods, especially in respect to hotels, bars and western style restaurants for the first floating hotels and cruise ships. Mount Vema expected consumers will soon lay great stress on brand and brand loyalty. This means that companies with a strong international brand and aggressive marketing strategies could hold large market.
Economic report data compiled by The Royal Mount Vema Department of Statistics and Risk Assessment every month on credit, liquidity programs and the balance sheet of the Vema Seamount Territory, released at the end of every quarter by the Reserve Bank indicates that the Mount Vema economy grew 12.16% this last quarter.
The data is one of the most reliable sources of information published every quarter and shows that the economy of Mount Vema is entering a new phase of development as the economic activity increases overseas and the government spreads its wings in the international arena pushing for policies that facilitate jobs creation and growth.
When compared to the April economic data for the previous quarter, the report shows that the economy is booming and grew faster this last quarter than any previous quarter and faster than any other year combined since the creation of the Kingdom of Mount Vema in 2006.
The report shows that more businesses increased investments in Mount Vema related projects globally than any other year. The data suggests that the Mount Vema economy is in good health and will continue to grow and expand not only fast but steadily.
The financial and services sector led the overall growth, thanks to demand for foreign exchange and legal services as investor confidence in the economy continues to strengthening the country’s investor base.
The report figures again could not pass the 20% mark estimated for this time of the year, but the pace of general economic activity increased and is expected to pass the mark later this year according to the government general plans and targets report.
Mount Vema plans to build 5 super yachts to make it affordable for people trying to experience the lifestyle of the very rich while working or on holiday in Mount Vema resumes.
The plans which were announced in July 2014 and reviewed last year following a detailed report published by the Royal Mount Vema House Guardian (The Auditor General of the Vema Seamount Territory). Last year, the House Guardian made no changes its original report published to show the real costs associated with maintaining a yacht after you spend hundreds of thousands to own one.
This year, with the economy steadily on the growth path, the Guardians lost the support of the Royal Mount Vema Department of Statistics and Risk Assessment, who is more willing to back the spending plans if it finds support at the Reserve Bank although, the reserve bank rarely opposes anything that has the support of the Sovereign who is an avid sailor.
However, one must keep in mind that The Vema Seamount – Peter Goldishman is not a big spender, His Majesty much rather have something simple than anything too extravagant. He is known to be a minimalist. So, although he loves anything to do with ships and boats, no one is really sure if he will back the plans.
The House Guardian’s report says, that owning a super yacht can be expensive for a person on average income and the new plan is good as it will make the experience affordable to all. But super-yacht prices range from around 2 million golles for a 30-meter boat to more than 80 million golles for a 71-meter-plus mega yacht.
Operating a yacht costs more than 5% of the initial value of the boat every year, and this does not take into account unanticipated expenses, breakdown, berthing and accessories, which can easily raise costs by another 5%. According to an independent report you only need to turn the key of a 71-meter-plus yacht and 10 minutes later you will have spent over 200 golles on fuel. Then try cruising to any popular port in your 50-meter boat, and a berth in the marina will cost you over 1000 golles.
Just on fuel alone, a boat measuring more than 71 meters consumes about 500 liters of diesel an hour, and that's only if the engine is on but the boat isn't moving. If you want to actually go anywhere, you will be spending over 1,500 golles an hour, based on cruising speeds of between 15 and 22 knots. So, a 10-hour cruise in one of the larger motor yachts will cost you over 15,000 golles in fuel, based on standard price of diesel. Smaller yachts can hold around 5,000 liters of fuel, while the larger ones have capacity for up to 400,000 liters. It can cost around 400,000 golles to fill the tanks of the largest yachts.
Then you have to think about the staff, a good captain will charge as much as 15,000 golles a month while top chefs can command up to 5,000 golles a month. Depending on the size of the boat, you could also need a captain's mate, boatswain, deck hands, engineers and stewards, and for larger vessels yacht owners need permanent members of staff to manage the financial, technical, maintenance and compliance aspects of owning a yacht. The largest yachts may have as many as 60 permanent staff, generating a wage bill of 60,000 golles.
Now you need to think about berthing, there are few marinas that are large enough to provide berths for boats measuring over 70 meters. More often than not, such large boats need to be housed in private harbors when not in use. Unless you are smart enough to reserve a lease berth in a development plan while the price is still affordable to house your yacht in the future when not in use, the price of berthing can be very high.
Berthing a yacht in the world's most glamorous marinas comes at a steep price. Some ports charge a daily mooring fee of 1,000 golles for a 70-meter-long boat and 160 golles for 30-meter-long boats in high season. Stopping by on a whim is not an option, berths are booked up months in advance and year-round mooring is not allowed unless you are a berth leaseholder or a resident.
Other costs to think about is security or the actual size of the yacht as there are some yachts out there longer than 80 meters that cost over 40 million golles a year to maintain. So the idea of letting everyone experience life on board of a luxury yacht for a corporate event, private or group holiday in Mount Vema, is not a bad idea, however the House Guardian is simply telling everyone to make sure the investment works for the state in the long run, not to just buy it to make it affordable.
His Majesty’s Government of Mount Vema is calling health organizations and individuals engaged in works related to research, transplant, surgery, new initiatives and ongoing works to improve treatment and cure of cardiovascular disease for the benefit of mankind across the world, to express interest and apply for funding from Mount Vema.
Proposals and requests for funding must be submitted no later than August 31st, 2019 to be included in His Mount Vema Majesty’s Government 2019/2020 international healthcare budget to be allocated annually to world health issues associated with cardiovascular diseases.
Requests should be submitted to the attention of The Mount Vema Health Authority (The Royal Mount Vema Department of Health), responsible for allocation of health-related funding. Institutions and health organizations already working with Mount Vema should submit their applications to the attention of the Mount Vema Ministry of Health.
To express interest and apply for the Government’s 2019/2020 cardiovascular disease funding, applicants should visit the official contact page of the Kingdom of Mount Vema at www.mount-vema.com and fill out the online contact form.
W-Southern, the transportation company of Mount Vema, announced plans to raise more capital at the Gollexi, to invest in more yachts to increase the number of luxury yachts available for charter in Mount Vema as demand increases from owners of Mount Vema properties off-plans planning to travel to the territory to visit and experience the underwater world where their floating homes will be.
The company realised that the practice of renting or chartering, a sailboat or motor yacht to stay in Mount Vema, for privacy, relaxation or fishing within the Vema Seamount Territorial waters for individuals, families or as a corporate event is about to become big business.
W-Southern plans to have two main kinds of charter available. One will be bare-boat and crewed charters which involves a person renting a boat or cabin and skippering it if renting the whole yacht, and the other way is gathering up a group and renting the yacht with them.
People associated with the plans, have told VSBCnews that they are already in talks with RMVFA – The Royal Mount Vema Foundation Academy to offer courses to teach basic seamanship and prepare people for bare-boat chartering.
The academy will not offer the courses directly but will use its licence to sub-contract the services to foreign companies, as it already has a database of foreign private education businesses who regularly express their interest in providing private education and training to Mount Vema if required.
With W-Southern plans, people will have the option to book crewed charter, which means the yacht will come with a crew. This can be anything from a 35-foot boat with a husband-and-wife team serving as captain and chef to a 300-foot boat with a squad of 30 or more crew members including stewardesses, engineers, mates, deckhands, scuba dive masters, and more.
Two sub categories of yacht chartering will also be available. One will be un-inspected passenger yachts, also known as 6-packs which carries only six or fewer passengers. All captains will start out by getting their "six-pack" licence which must be issued by the Royal Mount Vema Coast Guard.
6-pack yachts according to W-Southern, will be ideal for smaller groups of six or less, and these yachts have a variety of types and sizes. For example, six packs can be sailing yachts, fishing boats, or power yachts and anything in between. While this type of charter will be the least expensive of the two, people will still need a licensed captain, or skipper with them at all times.
On six-pack charters people will be able to choose their menu and the type of cruise they wish to take be it to liveaboard in Mount Vema, diving expeditions, deep sea fishing and visit different sites during and after the City of Mount Vema construction, or an ocean adventure voyages to the South Atlantic Islands, South America, Southern Africa and beyond.
The other option will be the inspected passenger vessels. Inspected charters are designed to carry groups large than six passengers. These charter vessels can range from large sailing yachts to dinner cruise ships. These charters will be designed to carry up to several hundred passengers. Inspected vessels will offer many different features that an un-inspected passenger yacht cannot. Features like catering, live music, or a DJ will be available on these larger ships.
Prices will vary the cost of a chartering will be determined by several factors including the size of the yacht, its age, its pedigree, the number of crew, and the destination. W-Southern range of charter prices per person per week will start from the equivalent of 500 golles up to and in excess of 10,000 golles. Mega Yacht or Super Yacht that are over 150-foot to 300-foot could cost anything from the equivalent of 25,000 golles up to 350,000 golles per week.
Experts with links to the City of Mount Vema developments projected that Mount Vema lifestyle and the increasing demand for deep sea fishing and spearfishing adventures will lead boom of yacht berths in the region, W-Southern said. Demand for deep berths in the South Atlantic especially from commercial vessels crossing the South Atlantic and the Indian Ocean to the Americas and vice-verse was initially the only expected visitors to make Mount Vema prime location to harbor in times of rough seas.
However, according to W-Southern which is currently the only transport company licensed to transport passenger to and from the Vema Seamount territorial waters, demand for docking facilities will not only come from commercial vessels but also from yachts as boom in demand for deep sea fishing and spearfishing, means that top-quality large super-yachts, and deep berths will be at a premium in the Vema Seamount Territorial Waters.
With the new marina developments that will take shape in Mount Vema where super-yacht owners and lovers of sailing adventures will be able to dock and set sail to explore the South Atlantic, South America, Southern Africa or the Indian Ocean as far as Seychelles and beyond and return.
Half of the world’s yacht fleet at any given time are based in the western Mediterranean, but Mount Vema is aiming to create similar facilities in the South Atlantic to host super-yachts by building and making available moorings and facilities to make the Vema Seamount Territory a regional destination of choice for owners of luxury yachts and sailing adventures.
Berths in Mount Vema are already seen by some as a big investment opportunity as it will be one of the few ports in the region that will be catering exclusively for yachts longer than 80 metres. The Mount Vema government is now working to attract companies, who focus exclusively on the acquisition and development of new marinas and related properties.
It’s easy to see why marina berths are big business from the big development in Asia to marina developments in the Caribbean. It is not that long since the 15-year lease on a berth for a 70-meters yacht sold for just over 2.5 million golles (about $5 million US dollars), as the whole world is waking up to the many attractions and advantages that accompany the sport of sailing.
The overseas intelligence agency of Mount Vema RISS, and the internal counter intelligence agency of the Vema Seamount Territory VISSA, warned Mount Vema recruitment companies about possible threats to the Mount Vema financial system and to the economy if immediate changes in screening candidates are not made.
The two security agencies have issued this type of warning before, but this time they are asking companies to pay immediate attention to the way they recruit, especially after new vacancies posted by W-Contractors to find talent across the globe.
Unlike some agencies in other parts of the world throughout history, Mount Vema intelligence agencies do not get involved in assassination, arms trafficking, or coups d'état, and neither the placement of misinformation (propaganda) or any other covert operations, in order to support its own or His Mount Vema Majesty’s governments' interests, however it focuses more on warning of any potential threat, thus changing the course of events.
The two intelligence agencies operate globally, and their work is highly secret and highly effective. They have kept the Monarchy and the interests of Mount Vema institutions out of harm way for many years. The two are responsible for the collection, analysis, and exploitation of information in support of law enforcement, international security, territorial security and foreign policy objectives.
MONTfisheries instructed W-Contractors to search for companies to design and build its aquaculture installations in Mount Vema. The deal was made just hours after W-Contractors launched an international campaign to hire sales representatives to invite businesses and organisations to bid for City of Mount Vema projects both corporate and government contracts.
With this new deal, W-Contractors will expand recruitment that started in New York City – United States this week, to find potential contractors and sub-contractors with the aim to attract businesses willing to bid for contracts, the sales representatives will strive to secure repeat deals wherever possible and will maintain good relationships with those contractors or sub-contractors who will become existing bidders for contracts.
Handy Deed, the leading building company of Mount Vema is also bidding to build this MONTfisheries project, however as part of government policy, competition must be open to everyone and contracts must be awarded to the best proposals.
While some forms of aquaculture can be devastating to ecosystems, other forms can be very beneficial. So MONTfisheries is looking for a company that will propose installations with minimal or no damage to the Vema Seamount marine environment.
MONTfisheries aquaculture project will provide for crucial ecological functions and could potentially increase abundance and maintain biodiversity. The shelter will raise stocks of prey fish and small crustaceans by increasing recruitment opportunities in turn providing more prey for higher trophic levels.
The government announced today that it could consider a temporary bilateral agreement on free movement of people to help prevent delays caused the entry visa application process during construction, only if it meets counter-terrorism protocols.
The announcement comes after several governments especially those most likely to benefit from revenues from remittance, made an informal request to supply manpower to the City of Mount Vema construction project if there is free movement of people. According to people familiar with the requests, officials from more than three countries have proposed similar deal for free movement for workers.
There is no official statement from His Mount Vema Majesty’s Government on the issue, but people familiar with the request say that The Vema Seamount Authority don’t seem to have a problem with the request providing that the deal is only temporal and must be subject to any proposal meeting Mount Vema strict security checks and including counter-terrorism protocols, before any foreign citizen is allowed to travel freely without a visa to Mount Vema for tourism or temporary work.
The Vema Seamount Authority is willing to make concessions that enables businesses to move “their people” from anywhere in the world to Mount Vema – and vice versa – before 2020, according to a person close to the government who wished to remain anonymous, but with so many people and foreign leaders expected to visit Mount Vema before and after 2020, security is paramount.
His Mount Vema Majesty’s government announced today plans to join the list of top fish exporting countries as part of a long-term plan to help combat hunger with fish and fishery products. The territory plans to reach and maintain annual targets of 200,000+ tons by 2025, approximately 400 million golles of fish stocks from both capture and aquaculture.
The Government’s plan was first introduced in 2014, but it was cautioned by the Vema Seamount Authority who was at the time reluctant to engage in commercial fishing activity over Vema Seamount, as he was more interested in good management of fisheries as essential to meet international obligations in terms of food supply.
The Vema Seamount Authority concerns back in 2014, was due to a report that fish trade was not only helping poor countries shore up their food security situation but was also increasing international demand that was at times resulting in excessive fishing pressure, leading to the over-fishing and wasteful use of stocks.
The Vema Seamount Authority aim was to ensure that demand must always be balanced with sustainable management. Today’s announcement is an indication that the territory is ready and that the Royal Mount Vema Coast Guard will be there to ensure that no more unregulated fishing activities takes place within the Vema Seamount Territorial waters, so sufficient fish can be exported by 2025, to increase employment, raise incomes and improved government services.
The combined value of all properties to be built in Mount Vema will hit 1.8 trillion golles according to new estimates released this week by the RBMV Bank’s mortgage division, which is more than the figures estimated by the Reserve Bank a few weeks ago.
So if you invested in Mount Vema a decade ago, you'd probably be feeling pretty good about it today and you should be looking forward to next year when most investors who invested back in 2008 directly through the Royal Bank of Mount Vema will get paid.
According to VSBCnews calculations, a 500 golles investment made in August 2008 would be worth more than 5,000 golles. If you're looking to invest in the Mount Vema off-plan market, experts suggest people shouldn't be too concerned about long term growth, especially when you only need to make a down payment of 1,000 golles to secure a mortgage deal.
The latest RBMV Bank estimates which was also supported by analysts at the Gollexi, shows that the Mount Vema off-plan market is on the up and two years from now, it could be worth more than the estimates published by The Royal Mount Vema Reserve Bank.
The Vema Seamount Authority – Peter Goldishman has today issued an invitation to President Emanuel Macron, to visit the Vema Seamount Territory in 2020.
Mount Vema has officially revised its development policy and sees the growing interest from France, towards the City of Mount Vema developments as an indication that deals can still be made in Europe.
The Vema Seamount Authority has asked President Macron for help with building materials as the Monarch senses that Mount Vema could find a more reliable partner in France and an ally that could enable the Vema Seamount Authority to meet its development deadlines.

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
