New Zealand commits SBD40 Million Aid to support Education in Solomon Islands

New Zealand Aid has confirmed it will continue to support phase two of the Education Sector Investment and Reform Programme, ESIRP in Solomon Islands with 40-million for the next three years.

This was revealed by the Minister for Education Dr Derek Sikua when he opened the Ministry's ESIRP review yesterday.

"This amounts to SBD 40 million dollars per year as direct budget support and New Zealand one million dollars per year for technical assistance to support program implementation. On that not, I wish to thank New Zealand for their foresight and intention for a good cause".

Dr Sikua says NZAID's announcement of support for 2007 to 2009 phase two was made through New Zealand High Commissioner Brian Sanders.

The ESIRP review will complete today at the King Solomon Hotel.
