Minister of Mines and Energy urges people of Malaita to work hard
Speaking on the province’s Second Appointed Day Tuesday this week, Minister of Mines and Energy Toswell Kaua said development on Malaita rests on hard work and cooperation.
Mr Kaua led a six man delegation national Government to the province’s Second Appointed Day, which coincided with the closing of the successful week-long Malaita Mini-Trade Show in Auki.
The Government Communications Unit quotes Mr Kaua as saying the involvement and contribution of Malaitans to Solomon Islands may not be appreciated but that does not mean that they should give.
He said it is all Malaitans' duty to their families, Malaita, Solomon Islands and to God that they continue to work hard.
Mr Kaua said from the cane-fields in Australia and Fiji to coconut plantations in Samoa, Vanuatu and other parts of the country, Malaitans have toiled and worked hard to earn a living.
He says in doing this, they have contributed to the economic development of those nations and of Solomon Islands.
