Malaita care-taker Premier thanks national government
He says his government has been in negotiation about this debt since his government first came into office.
Mr Moli says the debt has been a major obstacle to the ability of the Provincial Government to provide services to the people of Malaita.
He says the Solomon Island Government’s recent announcement that they have settled the debts to NPF will give the Provincial Government a very positive start to a period of new growth.
Mr Moli says the Government’s generous assistance will greatly improve the overall strength of the Malaita Provincial Government.
He says 2007 should be a very exciting time for Malaita.
Mr Moli says the determination of the Malaita people to become more self reliant within the Province's 2007 to 2010 strategic plan, is supported by the national government’s rural development plan and the ongoing assistance of Aid donors.
