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 plans for mass job creation in manufacturing, logistics, construction, security, hospitality and other sectors was halted in 2012, but after a restructure that took the Kingdom of Mount Vema almost five years, the government announced that it is ready to resume business as at 100% capacity.
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.
A significant consideration in drawing up the new plan was, transportation and accommodation especially during the initial stage of the construction of the Port of Mount Vema which is about to start, and the general changing global trading environment.
The government, with today’s announcement, wanted to reassure the hundreds of people applying for work in Mount Vema on daily bases, that the conditions are being created to facilitate travel to the island and genral work conditions. The hospitality and support services will be ready, as soon as recruitment and procurement targets are met to respond to the challenges of building a City in a location as remote as Mount Vema, and to ensure that the activities of the participating enterprises remain resilient in the face of changes to come.

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
