Transparency International Vanuatu says it is getting a lot of support in its fight against corruption from the country's Prime Minister, Joe Natuman.
Mr Natuman, a veteran politician, became prime minister for the first time in May.
TIV's interim chair, Dr Willie Tokon, says despite the organisation's efforts to conduct civics education, there is still not a lot of understanding of what corruption is.
But he says the new government is supportive of its efforts.
"TIV received an invitation to go and take part in a workshop trying to set up an anti corruption commission in Vanuatu - something that Vanuatu ratified in the United Nations about 3 or 4 years ago, [but that] hasn't been done. So we regard this new prime minister in Vanuatu as a very strong ally in our fight."
