A new wharf that has opened in Vanuatu is believed to be the longest in the South Pacific.
The wharf at Luganville on Santo is 360 metres long and has a new passenger terminal as well as facilities for cargo.
It would be able to accommodate two cruise liners at once.
Built by the Shanghai Construction Group, the new wharf costs about $US86 million.
The Luganville Wharf was opened by Vanuatu's Prime Minister Charlot Salwai and Chinese Ambassador, Liu Guan.
Mr Salwai said the project confirms Vanuatu's solid partnership with China.
