Malaita throws full support towards national government's rural development policy

The Premier of Malaita Province Hon Richard Naamo Irosaea had re-affirmed his government's support for the national government's bottom up approach initiative.

Mr Irosaea says his government sees the bottom up approach concept in economic development as the best way forward. He says involving rural people who make up for 80 percent of the country's population in economic development will certainly help improve their living standards.

Premier Irosaea says his Government is ready to assist where it can to ensure major economic development projects in Malaita like the Bina Harbour and the Auluta Basin projects get off the ground without further delays.

He also appeals to all land owning groups in both areas to cooperate with the responsible organisations and officers engaged in the implementation process.

Premier Richard Naamo Irosaea further added the present national governments' rural development policies will help his government develop the province to a level that will be beneficial to rural Malaitans.

Speaking to SIBC News on Friday, Mr Irosaea said his government plans to work with the national government in the implementation of its 'bottom-up' development to help improve the standard of living of the people of Malaita.

The Malaita Premier said he will ensure his government ministers and officials keep up with the national government's rural development plans for the Province.

"With the present government's policy we hope that close involvement with this development process, we will be able to design some meaningful development programmes for our people of Malaita. This way we can contribute to the development of Solomon Islands.
