Solomon Islands to engage Taiwanese Volunteers

Solomon Islands expects to engage volunteers from the Republic of China or Taiwan after Cabinet signs an agreement for the scheme.

Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare says the scheme is an advancement of the cordial relationship between Taiwan and Solomon Islands.

Mr Sogavare says this was one of two major agreements established with the Taiwanese Government during his recent visit to the Republic.

The Prime Minister says the second agreement involves expansion of trade and investment between the two nations.

He says the enforcement of the amended Foreign Investment Act is a step in the right direction.

Mr Sogavare says the new changes are intended to make it easier and simple for investors to start businesses in Solomon Islands.

He says the initiative should encourage Taiwanese businessmen to invest in Solomon Islands.
