SI Government vows to do anything to help people
Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare has vowed that he would "welcome and would take any radical and unorthodox measures to support and co-operate with the people and development partners” in the government’s endeavour to create a better Solomon Islands.
In a statement relayed to a meeting yesterday of Isabel Chiefs, leaders and Trustees at Jejevo in Buala, Mr Sogavare reiterated the government’s seriousness in ensuring his leadership is beneficial and uplifting for Solomon Islanders.
To this end, Prime Minister Sogavare said the government will be, “reform-minded, people-focussed and rules-based”.
The Prime Minister's statement said the government will remove barriers that impede development at rural level, and ensure that policies that deliver results are implemented.
The Government Communications Unit says government has been translating its policy statement into ministerial work programs and projects, which will result in a workable Programme of Action for the next four years.
The Unit says the Prime Minister had also disclosed government plans to put three public officers in each of the 50 Constituencies throughout the country “to assist in the bottom-up approach to economic and social development and good governance in Solomon Islands”.
