Malaita Assembly Members determined to work with people to build the province
Members of the Assembly repeatedly commented that they had not previously felt such united feelings of hope and determination as they felt after last week’s Budget Assembly Meeting.
A number of changes agreed to by the Assembly will see greater community involvement in all decisions in the Province and particularly in deciding how money for development projects will be spent in the Wards and regions of Malaita.
The Assembly endorsed proposals, put forward by the Provincial Executive, for a range of strategies to increase the Province’s ability to listen to its people and to deliver services where it really counts – at grassroots.
At the heart of these proposals are plans to strengthen regional Provincial government services in the four regions of mainland Malaita and for the Outer Islands.
They also approved the establishment of Regional Consultative Committees to set up development priorities.
