Gaby’s maternal grand-father was one of the thousands of Vietnamese workers who migrated to New Caledonia in the late 1890s to work on mines or plantations. He later became a baker and married an Indonesian woman, who had migrated to New Caledonia from the island of Java. Gaby is a former journalist and politician.
