New Tobolar Ship Inaugurated

The Marshall Islands inaugurated a new vessel for Tobolar on Friday, February 28, 2013 at the Uliga Dock.  The Tobolar ship is a donation of the Government of the Republic of China (ROC) Taiwan that will be used to transport coconut oil from the outer islands for processing in Majuro.  Coconut oil is one of the RMI’s principal exports to the United States so the new ship should make it easier for the country to increase revenues from this valuable local resource.
