Solomon Islands Academic congratulates government on Malaita Palm Oil project
Writing from Melbourne, Australia where he is studying, Philip Tangini says the project is important because it is the first major development on Malaita since the Townsville Peace Agreement was signed in 2000.
He says now that the land acquisition process has been launched, it is a happy moment for Solomon Islands.
Mr Tagini says the project will set the platform for future developments in the country.
He says Malaitans must realise that this project will test their perseverance to the limit.
Mr Tagini says he hopes government's good work will not stop at Auluta but extend to other parts of Malaita and other provinces.
